No matter how great or small the challenge, completing a goal we have set our sights on gives us an immense sense of exhilaration and achievement. The fulfilment of any dream challenge is made all the more important when we are doing it for a worthy cause. Helping community groups and charities raise much needed funds, whilst pushing ourselves to try something new is a fantastic way of raising the profile of charitable organisations and supporting people when they need it the most.
According to research by the Charities Aid Foundation, a total amount of £9.7 billion was donated by the British public in 2016, with approximately 89% of people reporting to have participated in at least one charitable/social action in the previous year. Access to centralised funds and grants is becoming increasingly difficult in todays market and charities are having to find new and innovative ways to raise funds to continue their important work.
Charity challenge events are an increasingly popular way to generate valuable funds to support local, national and international organisations. The team at We Are Travel are here to help you find the perfect ‘Charity Challenge’, so in turn your chosen charity can support more people, projects and causes.
What Options Are Available?
Are you an individual fundraiser or a charitable/community organisation looking to raise funds? We can arrange either a dedicated trip or you can join other like-minded adventurers. Whichever suits you best. Our specialist pages contain more detailed information to get you started, but here’s a summary…
For Charities – Bespoke and Open Charity Challenges
For registered charities, community groups and company events. Events can be organised either as part of an expedition with other charitable groups/travellers (open challenges) or specifically in the name of your charity (bespoke challenges). The choice is yours. So you don’t need to worry about getting minimum numbers. One adventurous fundraiser is enough! The We Are Travel Team will work alongside you to select the most appropriate challenges and dates to attract the best fundraising opportunities for your members.
Individual Fundraiser Challenges
Join a group of like-minded adventurous fundraisers and travellers to undertake your challenge. Whether it is a sedate bike round through Vietnam or a full-on trek to Kilimanjaro, you will meet new people and spur each other on along the the way. You can choose from any of the trips featured on our website or visit our Charity Challenge Inspiration page for more ideas. To sign up for any of the trips you can either speak with one of our Travel and Experience Consultants or submit a booking form and we will be in touch to arrange your spectacular expedition. Visit our Individual Fundraiser pager for more details.
Team Fundraiser Challenges
If you have a group of friends wanting to do something special for your chosen cause then we can arrange a charity challenge specifically for your group. The We Are Travel Team will make all of the arrangements for you and will mange the sign up process. All you need to do is pick the challenge! We can even arrange for extended trips to include a bit of rest and relaxation at the end of your challenge. Visit our Team Challenges page for more information.
How do we raise money?
You can opt to fund your trip in a variety of ways (either self-funding or partial self-funding). Our team offer support to help you generate awareness about your charity challenge trip to rally the sponsoring troops! Charities can also promote their events via our website to increase opportunities to sign up additional participants.
