Fundraising With Creatio
It may be surprising to learn that fundraising can be more than just asking friends and family for cash. When done correctly you can not only pay for most or all of your mission trip or pilgrimage, but gain a better appreciation for your own experience, grow in virtue, and spread the word about a worthwhile cause. Plus, the time you spend preparing via fundraising in advance of your trip will deepen your experience abroad. The more often you explain your purpose to a potential donor, the more clear your purpose in volunteering, walking or discovering will become to you, too.
So what does a successful fundraiser look like? We’ve compiled some tried-and-true methods into easy action items. Download our in-depth .PDF guide for details on how to launch and manage a fundraiser.
When you’re ready to get started, we offer an easy-to-use service so you can direct donors to your own webpage. The best time to start fundraising for your trip was yesterday, so do not wait. Get started today!
How much can I fundraise?
By inviting others to be a part of this mission, you can fundraise the entire cost of the trip as well as flight costs (if not included) and deposits! This happens upon submission of your nonrefundable deposit, after completing the Trip Application Agreement when an account will be established. All monies will be administered as an individual “support account” set up in your name on Creatio’s records. You may direct donors to donate to your support account for any Experiences that are considered Mission Trips or Adventure Missions.
Your support account balance will be used to pay down the cost of the Experience. If you used personal funds to pay for the Experience and later received fundraising support to cover the total cost of the Experience, your support account balance may be reimbursed to you to cover the number of personal funds used to pay for the Experience. In addition, if your flight was not included in the Experience cost, any remaining balance above the cost of the Experience may be reimbursed to you up to the cost of your flight.
Any amount fundraised in excess of the total Experience cost and airfare are not reimbursable. Any contribution made to Creatio that is designated to an individual support account shall be considered a gift to Creatio. All gifts to Creatio are the sole property of Creatio and to the extent permitted by law, shall be considered as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes.
