FUNDRAISING

  • How will I pay for this? I am just a poor college student.
  • Paola spent 3 years as a full-time missionary fundraising her salary. She will help you every step of the way! Fundraising enables you to go on a mission you might not be able to otherwise.  (and people are usually really nice anyway!)  If you do everything you are supposed to, it is very unlikely you will not raise enough to go on the trip.
  • Don’t let money be the reason you don’t go on mission. 10 reasons to go on a mission trip and why you need to go. They all outweigh the obstacle of funding!

Spots are limited. We have room for only 12 women and 12 men.
