Whether you are raising money for a children's hospital, your child's Little League team, a school in a developing country or another cause that is near and dear to your heart travel can be a great fundraiser!
The options are truly only limited by your own imagination. Schedule your free consultation to discuss your how we can help you raise money for your fundraiser. We understand the importance and challenges of fund-raising in the current economy, and appreciate that the continued success of non-profit organizations depends on the hard work of dedicated people and the generosity of contributors. Because we realize that organizations are often struggling to raise much needed funds we have developed two programs that can enhance the fund-raising efforts of non-profits.
With these programs much needed funds can be raised for charity while at the same time giving supporters all the wonderful memories of an unforgettable vacation experience. With these programs, we do most of the work, while charities reap the benefits.
Group Programs Fundraising with group travel often can earn charitable donations up to $300 per passenger. As few as 10 - 16 passengers double occupancy can raise between $3000 - $5000. The amount can obviously be much higher with a larger group or a higher per person amount.
We work with individual charities to pick the right itinerary for their group, to add value for supporters joining the group (such as group amenities, private gatherings, etc.), and to set a per-room or per-person amount to be donated to the charity after the travel is completed.
The exact donation amount is based on:
the cruise line or tour operator used
length of itinerary (i.e. a 14 night cruise would have a higher donation amount than a 3 night cruise)
the time of travel (off-peak cruises might earn more than on-peak cruises)
What costs are involved? Very often the cost is not very high. There may be a few marketing related expenses and sometimes for special amenities that are added to the package. These expenses may be covered through sponsorship opportunities etc.
What’s the “catch”? There really is no “catch.” There is little or no financial risk to the nonprofit organization. The success of the group is ultimately up to the charity, and how much they can promote the group to supporters and donors. The more passengers that book into the group space, the more of a donation we raise for the charity. We can provide a private customized website for the group, customized materials (i.e. PDF flyers) for distribution via email and website links, and material to be included in email blasts. Only if someone wants to PRINT flyers for distribution might the charity incur some minor costs.
