We understand how difficult it can be at times to fundraise your trip fees. Approximentaly 70% of our past trips have been paid completely by the student participants. We are here to help you with not only flexible payment plans but as well as scholarships and fundraising ideas.

Fundraising Ideas

  • Seasonal Fairs - Reach out to the organizer of large fairs in your area. They may have shifts available for cashiers at their food stalls or ticketing booths.

  • Lifetime Triathlons & Events - In truth, Triathlons don't have to be organized by Lifetime in order for them to be seeking temporary workers. Reach out to organizers. Lifetime hosts triathlons in these cities:

    • Chicago

    • Minneapolis

    • Miami

  • Stadiums & Concerts - Reach out to the company that handles the food sale operation. At times many of them are seeking to hire temporary workers (contractors) This is also a cool way to see concerts and sports games while making money at the same time!

  • Greek Life Sponsorships - Ask your chapter if they'd be willing to sponsor you or the group as a whole. Reach out to the national chapter and past Alumni too!

  • Set up a Fundraising Day with a Local Business

  • Ask for Corporate Sponsorships - Reach out to local organizations and companies. You never know when one of them would love to support the social issue by donating to your group.

  • Swear Jar - If you work at an office, ask your supervisor if it'll be okay to set up a Swear Jar at the work place. If they say yes, then perfect! Next step is to tell your coworkers, and hopefully you make a few bucks just by announcing it!

  • The Slice the Price - Domino's fundraising card allows us to help teachers, coaches, students, veterans, and others, change lives one pizza card at a time.
