$8,518,265 Raised for charities


Fundraising Event Success Stories!

Written by Michele Richardson on June 29, 2017

Our mission is to be the best in the world at helping charities and schools raise money for the important work they do every day.

Today, we are excited to announce that we have helped raise almost $8,000,000 in less than 5 years – and we’re just getting started! In the last 90 days alone, Getaway2Give trips sold at charity events have raised over $1.3 million!

How are we able to help raise so much in such a short period of time? Glad you asked! Vacation experiences always fetch top dollar during live auctions at events and galas. Getaway2Give offers these experiences AND the ability to sell multiples, giving charities the opportunity to sell to anyone who wants to buy! Here are a couple of their stories.

Laguna Niguel, CA

What do they do?
McDowell School offers exceptional care and education, with a curriculum that extends from infants through the elementary grades. With approximately 225 children, McDowell School fosters a strong sense of community through outreach programs, responsibility and citizenship in their students.

How much did they raise?
With 1 donated trip and 10 consigned trips, McDowell School raised $20,000 that went straight to work for the children. Getaway2Give vacation experiences were responsible for over 25% of the money raised during this event.

Portland, OR and Washington D.C.

What do they do?
Medical Team International responds to disasters around the world—and here at home—by sending teams of volunteer medical professionals as well as medical supplies to care for the sick and injured. They also mobilize long-term health promotion initiatives, collaborating with established partners within each community to ensure that programs have a sustainable impact.

How much did they raise?
With just 5 consigned trips, Medical Team International raised $21,250.

Thanks to generous supporters, trips can also be purchased and donated. Our charity partners love this because they have the opportunity to upsize what would have been a cash donation amount – twice and occasionally triple the amount, in fact. Our charity partners can always offer trips with a no-risk consignment, with the charity paying for the trip only if it sells. Either way, we’ve seen great success with organizations large and small.
