FUNDRAISING FOR MISSION TRIPS
VRBC encourages mission trip participants to do some fundraising if they are not able to fund their trip on their own. If someone wishes to make a contribution by check toward your trip, please be sure to have them write your trip and name in the memo line. If paying online, please notify Arthur Mendes of any payments so we can be sure they are applied to your mission trip account. To thank these donors, we suggest you write thank you notes or use your fundraising letter to invite all prayer and financial supporters to a celebration or reception after your trip, where you thank them for their support, show pictures or video from your trip, and share stories of ways God has worked in you and through you on this trip. You may wish to use this Sample Support Letter and tailor it to your specific trip.
