Fundraising Through Group Travel

Are you looking for a fun and innovative way to raise money for your charity, club or organization? Fundraising through Group Travel is an excellent way to raise funds. Steve Bertrand Travel Concepts has helped many groups over the years raise money through Group Travel. People prefer to travel with others that they have something in common with especially if it benefits an organization close to their hearts. Fundraising through group travel creates a win-win situation for you and your supporters.

Steve Bertrand Travel Concepts and our tour operator partner, Journeys Connect, will create a unique and memorable group vacation that will appeal to your group members in order to get the maximum amount of funds possible for your organization! Plus, we will handle all of the inquiries and bookings, so you will not be bothered with the little details.

How does it work?

Steve Bertrand Travel will spend some time with you to learn about your organization, its demographics, interests and fundraising goals. Once we have determined a destination, we will then create a unique group travel program that will appeal to your organization’s members and its supporters.

Once you have agreed to our program, and to assist in marketing, we will provide you with a digital flyer and a special customized web page with complete program details, including itinerary, inclusions, call to action, and booking procedures.

Other than marketing to your database of members and supporters, there really is little or no work involved for you or your organization. We handle all enquiries, bookings and payments.

How much can we raise?

This really depends on the type and length of group program you choose, as well as the demographics of your organization and its supporters. In most cases, you can expect to receive $100 – $200 per paying guest traveling in a group.

In addition, usually for every 25 paid guests traveling in the same trip, one person goes for free. These free places can also be used to generate additional revenue. The per person donation can be increased and we would offer you a suggestion based on the final itinerary.

Consider the Benefits

  • Raises Money!
  • No upfront financial risk
  • Increases awareness and generates interest in your organization
  • Builds and strengthens bonds within your supporter community
  • Complimentary travel for your Group leader or “Pied Piper”
  • Additional complimentary places as your group grows
  • Possible tax donation for your supporters
  • Little or no work involved for you or your organization

Ireland-Scenic-BeautifulCastle_300x170

To put it simply, the tour was FANTASTIC! Our tour covered so much in a short span of time – the history, culture, and beautiful landscapes of Ireland; the importance of writing and reading that are so prominent everywhere you go in this magnificent country; and the people who are so friendly and welcoming.

View of Rome from Castel Sant'Angelo, Italy._300x170

Can’t say thank you enough for lining up Valeria for the trip as well, she was the best…always making sure that everything was streamlined and she was always so excited to share interesting facts and she knew so much about Italian history! We also loved our time in Sorrento, especially because it is the origin of our last name.

Ireland-Scenic-BeautifulMountain_300x170

I am writing to share with you how delighted both myself and my group were with our recent 9-day excursion to Ireland that began on May 6th and was coordinated via Journeys Connect. First, I will admit that I was very hesitant about going to Ireland. I never traveled outside of the United States before and had many reservations. Especially because I was in charge of 32 of our top clients!  After this trip however, I can’t wait to go back!!
