We love to offer a stay within our project to all kinds of people from all over the world, no matter what their financial background is. The money we receive we invest in our animals, the kids' projects and the development and improvement of the project. We hope that with FundMyTravel we can offer to more people to join our cause and develop their horsemanship skills as well as social and language skills within our community.
We have been founded in 2014 with the idea to improve the well being of horses and people in Costa Rica and offer a special to people who want to discover a new culture, ranch work and natural horsemanship. Our program includes different activities like natural horsemanship lessons, care of a horse herd and barn, teaching english at a local school, organize donation activities for the local kids as well as kids fun days. Also our participants receive a 4 hour Spanish course per week. We are a German-Nicaraguan family and love to come together with people that like to make a difference and learn and develop together.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Finca Soley 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.
