Organizations Are Always Looking for a New Way to Raise Money

Share Article

A popular and successful way to raise money for many types of organizations is with group cruises booked by Montrose Travel. With their great negotiating ability to get very low pricing and 15 years experience working with organizations to fundraise, Montrose Travel is the expert in group travel for fundraising.

Montrose Travel is able to manage large numbers of inquiries about the cruise and finally seal the deal while working against cruise line deadlines. Many of our own first time cruisers spread the word about how organized and fun a cruise can really be. Montrose Travel has contributed to our total success year after year.

Montrose Travel, a $110 million full-service travel and host agency, has been working with organizations for over 15 years to help achieve their fund raising goals.

The most popular, and most successful way of bringing in those extra dollars has been with cruises. Montrose Travel's great negotiating ability gets very low pricing, the organization provides some type of added value (that costs little to no money) to the cruise, and before you know it, the entire block of cabins booked for the organization is sold out.

Here are just a few of the types of groups that have had success with this type of fund-raising:
o    Non-profits
o    Hospitals
o    Schools
o    Athlete teams

As an example, the Sierra Club has been working with Montrose Travel's Group Travel Division for more than 12 years. "They have been instrumental in helping us design cruises especially for our active members who generally would not go on a cruise. The agents are really tuned in to our needs and do some amazing things for us. They are in constant contact with the Sierra Club cruise coordinators, advising us and also doing everything possible to assist us in meeting our goals," says Donna Specht, Trip Leader of the Sierra Club, Angeles Chapter.

Specht continues, "Montrose Travel is able to manage large numbers of inquiries about the cruise and finally seal the deal while working against cruise line deadlines. Many of our own first time cruisers spread the word about how organized and fun a cruise can really be. Montrose Travel has contributed to our total success year after year."
