Fundraise for your Trip
At PCCS, we understand that every volunteer has a different budget for their trip. Despite doing our best to offer the most affordable program fee, we realizes that the total cost to volunteer abroad can still be expensive by the time the flights, travel insurance, and all other fees are paid. Fundraising is a great way to make your dreams of volunteering abroad a reality. Don’t lose heart if you do not have enough cash. You can any day raise fund by approaching people who may be interested in your cause and also make good contacts while at it. Fundraising is not easy- it takes time, energy and above all persistence. However, we have compiled some helpful guidelines that can help fundraise for your trip.
Gofundme.com is an online fundraising site for personal causes and life-events. GoFundMe creates a fundraising page for you, allowing you to set financial goals, tell your story (letting your family and friends know what you are doing and why they should support you), use social media platforms to notify your friends and family of your fundraising efforts, and provides financial tools for you to receive payments and tracks your progress. If you fund-raise through PCCS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit you will receive a discounted transaction rates.
Here are few fundraising websites from where you can raise fund online:
We have also brainstorm some helpful ideas to raise funds on your own from previous PCCS volunteers. Please contact us
