At Jamaica Volunteer Programs, our most important goal is helping you to make your dreams come true. That’s why our programs are so affordable and why we’re there every step of the way. But it doesn’t end there. Because we know traveling abroad can be expensive, and we understand your expenses extend beyond program fees.
There’s the cost for flights, travel insurance, and miscellaneous fees, among other costs. Whether you’re traveling for an internship abroad, studying abroad, or just looking for fundraising ideas for volunteering abroad, we have something for you.
That’s why at Jamaica Volunteer Programs, we help with the fundraising for your trip. We have partnered with a crowdfunding website, Fund My Travel, to provide our travelers with the opportunity to raise funds online.
With your Fund My Travel account, you can create a fundraising campaign, tell your compelling story about what volunteering means to you and why you need support, set your goal, and link your payment processor.
Use social media to share your campaign and watch the funds roll in. Our partnership with Fund My Travel has been very successful, and over the years, our volunteers have raised thousands for their trips using the platform.
