Sage Corps is a global entrepreneurship program that sends top college students to intern abroad with startups. Sage Corps seeks to identify and cultivate the next generation of business leaders who will: 1. Think globally 2. Promote entrepreneurship 3. Develop a professional network 4. "Pay it forward" After Sage Corps, they join fellow program alumni in the Sage Corps Alumni Network, and expand their professional network to fellows who have become employees of Google, Facebook, McKinsey, Deloitte, Fortune 500 companies, venture capital funds, and of course startups.

    Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Sage Corps 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.
