To equip local churches in the discipleship of youth and the development of Christian leaders.

Fund Raising

Fund Raising Ideas
  • Sell shares in the mission trips (example share)
  • Set up online giving for free through revgo.org   
    (directions for setting it up under the Dakotas Conference Youth Partner)  
    (card we used to promote..you can create your own qr scan code for free online)
  • Send out a fund raising letter (especially to family and friends not connected to your church)  sharing about the trip and asking for donations 
  • MATCHING FUNDS: Ask if people to check to see if their business will match their gift.  Lots of businesses have matching fund grants for their employees contributions to projects like a mission trip.
  • Checking with local community foundations for grants
  • Host a talent show and sell tickets
  • Do a fancy dessert auction after worship (best bakers to donate everyone to bid!)
  • Serve a meal - like Easter brunch or mother's day special event
  • Check out ABC fundraising   http://www.abcfundraising.com/
  • Car washes
  • Youth Labor ready...hire out to help people with their spring yard or home projects
  • ASK your pastor...they likely know of people who have told them they will help send kids to camp...maybe they would like to help here too.
