Tico Lingo is a Spanish school in Costa Rica devoted to giving students Spanish linguistic fluency through cultural immersion and cross-cultural education. Our aim is to teach, immerse, and initiate a global understanding of Costa Rican culture. We want students from all walks of life to be able to attend our programs, thus we've partnered with FundMyTravel to give students a platform to raise funds and break financial roadblocks.
Located in Heredia, Costa Rica, Tico Lingo was founded in 2015 as a language and cultural center aimed at offering the most unique and genuine Costa Rican learning experience. Since opening, we've taught students from over thirty different countries across the world and continue to reach new students far and wide seeking to learn the Spanish language. Our success is based on our commitment to quality and the highest level of student service and personalization. We continuously invest in professional staff and offer custom program options to ensure each student's overall experience is nothing short of excellent. Each Spanish Immersion Program at Tico Lingo emphasizes oral communication skills to help sustain Spanish language learning outside the classroom. Programs aim to directly connect students to the local community, language, and culture of Costa Rica.

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.
