Use Crowdfunding to Successfully Raise Funds for 

Your Travel Mission

 

Your missions are important to you. Yet one of the challenges many church and other well-meaning groups face is raising the money necessary to fulfill them. 

 

Have you considered crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is an effective, exciting new way to reach people, contributors, beyond your congregation, parish and neighborhood. As a matter of fact, crowdfunding enables your group to reach practically everyone on the Internet who may be interested in helping. 

 

Basically, crowdfunding is an easy to create website that your group can develop that requires no special website skills. Crowdfunding sites offer simple, step-by-step instructions where you enter basic information about your organization, your mission and how much money you wish to raise. Then, it becomes "live," and people who are interested in supporting efforts such as yours contribute. 

 

Here are some interesting and helpful articles 

that will give you the basics.
