All students must fundraise a minimum of $250 in addition to the Registration Fee. Fundraising is a big commitment, but is a necessary part of this mission trip. After you register online, fundraising instructions will be automatically sent to you by email. They are also available here. Once you have completed your fundraising, you must submit your donations online here so we can send a thank you letter and a tax deductible letter to your donors. Please plan to hand in your minimum fundraising requirement of $250 by May 1st. After which point you are welcome and encouraged to continue your fundraising efforts.
