Whether you’re planning to fund-raise to help pay for the cost of your trip or looking to raise extra funds for materials to use on construction projects, here are some ideas to help you get started!
Throw a car wash – it’s tried and true!
Many companies offer gift-matching and/or will make a donation in return for your volunteer service. One-to-one gift-matching and donations of up to $500 for a week’s worth of volunteer service are common! Do you know what your employer offers?

Hold a celebration (sell tickets, feature your favorite Louisiana or Michigan cuisine and music, and throw in some beads for good measure!)
Ask For Donations
Of all the ways to raise money, the most effective is still simply to ask those close to you if they’d like to make an impact through you! Share the story of your plans to come and serve with your family, school, church, Facebook friends and/or neighbors, and ask them to consider supporting your mission!
