REACH can help you plan, fundraise for and promote your mission trips. Here's how:
1. Set up your Mission Trip as an Event
Set up your mission trip as an Event in REACH. Include a start/end date, any description as well as photos and video. Include payment options such as requiring a deposit, offering a payment plan or paying in full at the time of registration. Include custom form fields to obtain any needed information at sign-up such as t-shirt size, emergency contact, etc.
Admins can then monitor registrations and easily send emailings to those registered.

2. Start a Fundraising Campaign
Organizations and supporters can start fundraising campaigns to raise funds for mission trips.
Campaign pages include any desired text, photos and videos as well as a section for updates. A list of donors and the donation amount are included by default. The amount can be hidden and admins can make the donor anonymous, if desired.
Supporters can start their own campaign and then easily share the campaign on social media. For supporter-started campaigns, organizations can require approval of a campaign prior to the campaign being public.

4. Sell Promotional Products
Organizations can set up an online store to sell t-shirts or any other promotional products for their mission trips. The number of products and variants per product are unlimited, each product can be set to taxable or tax-deductible, inventory amounts can be set and you can include a flat rate cost per item to ship.

6. Start Conversations
If your mission trip includes visiting sponsorships, you can start moderated conversations between your sponsors and their sponsorships before and/or after your trip. Conversations allow your supporters to send a message to their sponsorship that is then reviewed by your organization. Administrators can then share the message with the sponsorship in a variety of ways depending upon your organization's structures and/or policies.
