I am consistently approached by organizations, clubs, groups, and sports teams asking if and how I can help them with their fundraising efforts. I offer each of these groups one great piece of advice, plan a cruise.
The chocolate drive fundraising has been done. The gift wrapping sales has also been long played out. One of the best ways to raise funds for your organization, school, church school, soccer team is to cruise as a large group.
Travel agencies such as ours will help you organize a cruise for your organization. The profits can be large, into the thousands of dollars depending on how many individuals attend the event and how well the event is promoted. The cruise can be a weekend cruise, a holiday cruise scheduled around time off when your club members are available or on a date that marks a milestone for your club or organization.
So, organize your group. Pick a ship and a sailing date. Call your travel agent and get the ball rolling. Your travel agent should assist you with promoting the events, providing brochures and details on the ports of call and ship. Deposits can be as low as $25 per person.
Stop selling chocolates and wrapping paper and think outside the box. Your organization will make money and memories all at the same time.
