Cooperating Volunteers have teamed up with FundMyTravel to help you raise funds for your trips abroad. We understand that finances can be a roadblock to your travel plans and so we want to help you get a new alternative way of getting funding for your trip. It's easy and free to create an account, launch a campaign, share your page and run a successful campaign page with FundMyTravel!
Cooperating Volunteers is a company that organizes volunteer experiences at international level (voluntariado internacional), through the coordination and counseling of volunteers. Cooperating Volunteers has been created from the sum of projects around the world that allow volunteers to live a real experience, a cultural exchange, and a mutual benefit between volunteer and project. The work of the volunteers takes place in various areas of the planet. Our main mission is to transfer this feeling and desire for cooperation to the largest possible number of people who want to carry out an international volunteering in the main continents.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Cooperating Volunteers has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.
With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success. You can check out a few tips below before clicking the button above, to get started!
Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.
Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!
Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
