Each of our journeys is more than just an adventure; it is a true Travel Experience.
Donor travel can be more impactful than a nice brochure – it gives your Donors the opportunity to go and meet the people and projects they are already investing in…
For a successful fundraising it is not enough to have a nice brochure. Donors need to engage at the heart level with the direct beneficiary of their time and financial investment. Seeing and feeling the benefit that they are bringing to others will likely lead them to be more invested in your organization. Donor travel is a perfect opportunity for that to happen!
Donors are more likely to invest and increase their contributions when they have first-hand experience of the projects, the places, and the people to whom their resources are being committed. When funders are able to see the positive impacts of their investments, they become stronger supporters and advocates for the mission and projects of the organization. Tread Light Travels facilitates this opportunity by bringing donors and investors into direct contact with the specific projects they are investing in.
Creating a successful travel program requires time and careful planning. Whether you represent a museum, an alumni association, or any other special interest group, there are many different ways to structure and operate a successful non-profit travel program. Besides lacking the expertise to plan a donor travel, nonprofits may not have the manpower or hours to make it a successful travel experience. Tread Light Travels can plan a unique donor travel as fundraising solution for your non-profit organization and foundation focusing on social, environmental and educational projects in Latin America that are dependent on donor contributions and funding.
Strengthen existing donor base, while attracting new and greater sources of funds by exposing donors/investors to first-hand experience of projects within the local culture and environment.
- Stronger advocates with commitment and willingness to endorse the organization.
- Increase investment and funding from new and existing sources.
- High return on investment for minimal upfront cost.
- Valuable feedback on travelers’ experience and level of commitment to organizations’ and/or the project through an Independent Research Report (optional).
- Greater exposure to new funding sources through partnering with TLT, which donates part of each trip’s profit to one of its partner organization.
This is an opportunity for your organization to showcase successful project and results, but also a way to gather funding and support for projects in need of attention.
In addition, Tread Light Travels works with many corporations that offer employees matching contribution. It is a way to be exposed to volunteers as well as new source of funding.
