We're glad to partner with FundMyTravel - the only fundraising site dedicated for meaningful travelers. As Green Planet Ventures is a non-for-profit and inclusive organisation for meaningful experiences in Peru, Costa Rica and Brazil, we are keen to get students from all backgrounds involved, without discriminating against those from low income backgrounds. By partnering with FundMyTravel, it helps our students gain more confidence to travel abroad with our us.
Green Planet Ventures is a social enterprise dedicated to tropical forests conservation and research. We provide internships, work experience, volunteering and research opportunities in the field of tropical forest conservation and sustainable development. Our mission is to enhance youth education on sustainable development, global citizenship and the protection of tropical forests as an essential ecosystem to preserve life on planet earth and regulate climate.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Green Planet Ventures 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.
