Elevate’s Charity Challenges connect your nonprofit to inspiring, hand-picked, active adventures in places like Peru, Patagonia and Mount Kilimanjaro. We’ll set a physical challenge and you set a minimum fundraising goal. Watch the funds roll in as your adventure inspires support from each member’s personal network. Make lifelong memories and loyal connections along the way.
The best part? A Charity Challenge ignites a new generation of advocates for your cause — ones that might have come for the adventure but stay for you.
How a Charity Challenge Works
- Set a fundraising goal
Your nonprofit sets a minimum fundraising goal to reach. Often, the trip aims to fund a specific project or initiative to rally team members around.
- Tailor the trip
We’ll customize the trip around your target audience; for example corporate sponsors, volunteers, or donor groups. We’ll formulate the trip to make sure you maximize your fundraising outcomes.
- Recruit a team
We agree on a minimum number of participants (ideally 12-30 people). If you reach minimum numbers, we include a member of your organization to attend free of charge.
- Go out and conquer!
Your job is to take on the challenge. Our job is to take care of all the travel logistics, details, and heavy lifting. We answer all participants’ questions and manage the trip from start to finish.
