Fundraising

Since A Broader View Volunteers is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, US tax payers' program fees and related travel expenses are tax deductible *  ABV takes a 5% commission from each donation to pay Paypal, Bank fees and other. Have this in mind while fundraising.

Most of our volunteers successfully fundraise for their programs expenses.  Friends, family, employers, universities and matching programs of local corporations are a great resource for many of our volunteers.  Our fundraising material include a sample letter to send to prospective donors, tax receipt coupons, as well as ideas to expand your reach. We also encourage you to utilize the online ABV Fundraising account:

To create a Fundraising Page you must be a confirmed ABV volunteer (deposit paid), you need to LogIn to your ABV account and follow the “Fundraise for your Trip Banner or link”
