Fundraising Ideas

Do Need Ideas For Raising Funds [ Have No Fear! ]

[If coming solo] or with a group, raising your mission trip funding is easier than you think! We have found in most cases you can have your entire funds raised in 90 days. By writing and distributing personal support letters you can be on your way to the experience of a lifetime.

Personal Support Letters

We highly advise mailing and personally handing out seventy-five to one hundred personal support letters.

* If you can get 30 people to pledge $50 dollars towards your mission trip, your trip is covered!

People to give your personal support letter to:

Parents and Friends and Co-Workers / Grandparents and Friends of Grandparents

Neighbors / Friends / Your Friends’ Parents / Aunts and Uncles / Extended Relatives

Teachers and Former Teachers / Senior Pastor / Mission Board / People at Church / Your Doctors

Sunday School Teacher and former Sunday School Teachers / Members of your Sunday School Class

People from Former Church / Where You Shop / Hm. Cell Groups

Restaurants Where You Eat / Support Groups / Your Employer / People at Dorm

Be Aggressive !

1.) Your personal support letter should be placed in an envelope with your name on the outside.

* Within your envelope should be your personal support letter and a smaller stamped envelope with

your address on it.

2.) You should never give-up with just one letter to people. People want to help, but get busy.

*If people have not helped you with mission funds within three weeks, just send them another support letter.

[There is an saying “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” Jesus said: “If you don’t ask, you don’t receive.”]

*We have seen for many years that those who are not shy about handing out support letters get their trips paid in full by people supporting their mission.

Important

* It is best to start with personal letters then followed by other financial fundraising efforts.

Missionary Trip To [ place location ]

(We highly suggest that you paste a picture of yourself on your letter)

Dear (Place Possible Sponsors Name)

(Date)

This coming (Date), I’m going as a missionary to the country of ( Country Name ). This mission’s trip is designed to spread the Gospel of Christ to very poor people. I am in preparing right now for this endeavor. Some of the things I’ll be involved with are community work with suffering children, street evangelism and restoring communities with service projects. I am excited about this opportunity and I know that this experience will affect the rest of my life.

Would you please pray for me? Nothing will help more than a band of praying people standing with me every day as I prepare to go.

Of course, before I go, I have to raise my own support. The cost is ($0000.00) and I need your help. Will you be one of my financial sponsors by giving towards my trip? The funds for my airline ticket and project costs are due (Date).

Thank you so much for your thoughtful consideration. God is working in my life and this is just one of the ways He has shown me I can serve. I appreciate your prayers and support.

Sincerely, (We suggest you personalize your letter by signing each letter.)
