Fundraising for a mission trip is a great way to get active and keep involved in your church. Mission trips are mutually beneficial. Both the group receiving the help and the group providing the help come out feeling good about the whole experience.

In the months prior to your mission trip begin to advertise your event with posters and fliers. You can distribute the Church fundraising posters in your local neighborhood, at grocery stores and around your own church. This will help to raise awareness of your mission.

The next step is to write letters about your mission trip. Your letters should be very specific about your mission and that you are asking for fundraising donation to help support the mission. Also be sure to ask each letter recipient to pass the letter along to a friend or relative. It is easy to raise thousands of dollars from a simple letter campaign.

An open meeting or forum where you give a speech with the details of your mission event is also a great way to get parishioners involved in your fundraising. This will allow people to learn what your mission is about and give them an opportunity to ask questions about the mission. This allows people to feel a real part of the event which in turn will help fundraising donations soar.

Advertising in local newspapers, magazines, on radio stations and on TV is another great way to get the word out about your mission. When you advertise you should be very clear about the mission and place a call to action in the ad. Your call to action should encourage people to give time or money to your fundraiser for your mission.

Remember to thank everyone involved in your mission church fundraising. It is key to thank in two ways. First thank volunteers and donors before the mission. Let them know how grateful you are that they were able to help. Second is to thank donors and volunteers after the mission is complete. Give them an update on the mission so that they know their hard work and fundraising money truly went to a good cause.
