  3. 3. New income challenges… Due to the fierce competition for contribution dollars, new methods of raising money are becoming more & more creative … Fundraising with Travel is one of the most popular and creative of those new ideas.
  4. 4. Opportunity… Even in today’s economy, the experts are predicting that over 14 million people will choose a cruise vacation this year. Additionally, there are millions of others who are choosing tours or all-inclusive packages for themselves and their families.
  5. 5. New Ideas… You need to ask yourself:
  6. 6. New Ideas… You need to ask yourself: Do I know any of these travelers?
  7. 7. New Ideas… You need to ask yourself: Do I know any of these travelers? Are any of them my members or donors?
  8. 8. New Ideas… You need to ask yourself: Do I know any of these travelers? Are any of them my members or donors? Would they travel to benefit my organization?
  9. 9. Travel Fundraising! If any of your answers were “yes”, then why not tap into the easy and fun Travel Fundraising Market ? I can show you how a fun filled cruise, vacation package or tour can be used to generate money for your organization.
  10. 10. Make it a group! The general success of any travel fundraiser relies on creating a group event. In creating that event, we’ll search out the date, destination and itinerary you feel would appeal to the greatest number of your prospective travelers.
  11. 11. Make it a group! Then, I’ll search for the best price and greatest number of offered amenities from the tour company or cruise line, such as contribution dollars or matching funds. You can decide on any possible “mark-up” you’d like to add to the price to create additional contributions.
  12. 12. Advertise, Advertise… Once the trip is put together, you’ll need to advertise it using every means you have available such as: websites, blogs, Facebook pages, email blasts to your contacts….

  17. 17. Advertise, Advertise… Don’t forget the more traditional advertising: - Newsletters - Handouts - Postcards - Print Ads Remember, the more who travel with your special group, the more earnings for your organization!
  18. 18. Our job… Benefit Cruise and Travel handles all the details such as reservations, deposits and payments, Q&A’s, travel arrangements and documents. You simply provide the participants!!
  19. 19. Show me the money! Potential earnings can range anywhere from $25 a cabin or room to several hundred! Plus, there’s often a T our C onductor credit available (which means one “free” room or cabin for every X number of travelers). You can use this TC to offset the group travel expenses or convert it into cash! AND, the more participants in your group, the more TC’s you earn.
  20. 20. Show me the money! For example: Let’s say you had 50 cabins sailing on a 5-night cruise, the per cabin contributions are set at $100 and the TC’s (one TC for every 15 cabins) with a value of $500. Your earnings would be: $100 x 50 cabins = $5000 (TC’s earned @ 1 for 15 cabins = 3) x $500 = $1500 Your Total earnings this one cruise = $6500 Once travel is completed, your organization gets a check – it’s that easy!
  21. 21. We can make a travel fundraiser out of just about any type of travel – from a Grand Tour of Europe, to a Caribbean Cruise or a bus trip to Branson - there’s really no limit to the possibilities!
  22. 22. And don’t forget…. With any successful group travel, it could become an annual event getting larger and larger every year along with your potential donor list!
  23. 23. Special Note… Even if you can’t organize a large group – ask your donors, members, family & friends if their small personal groups would be willing to create a mini-fundraiser out of their travel for you. There’s no extra cost to them and it’s one less fundraiser you’d have to organize! The cruise lines are very generously giving this money to non-profits – why not take advantage of their offer to benefit your organization? It’s FREE!
