The most important fundraiser you will do this year is sending out your letters + brochures, as this is where you will raise the most money. Fundraising letters don't have to be scary or a burden to those that you send them to. Contributing to your mission trip is an opportunity for your donors to be a part of the Kingdom work that God does in and through your team this year. BE SURE TO SPEND SOME EXTRA TIME ON YOUR LETTERS TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE CREATIVE AND PROFESSIONAL. Ask a teammate who has been on missions before or check out the sample letters + brochures for something to help you get started!
Check out the fundraising packet for more ideas on raising support for your trip. Remember, what you put into your fundraising will influence how much you get out of it.
Once your letters are out, continue to pray. Don’t forget to send a brief thank you note to those who have supported you!
