holistic development

Volunteer Resource Site / Brigader Resources / Fundraise «

 

Volunteers fundraise to support Global Brigades’ Holistic Model. Once a volunteer meets a set Donation Goal for their interested program and country, they are eligible to join us on-the-ground to see their fundraising efforts put into action by participating in a Brigade. Volunteers have up to 1 year to participate in a Brigade after they meet their Donation Goal. If a volunteer decides not to participate in a Brigade, the funds raised will be utilized to support Global Brigades’ mission.

 

When a volunteer participates in a Brigade, the volunteer’s ground transportation, food, lodging, and emergency insurance are all covered. The funding that the volunteer raised also supports all the necessary costs for program implementation, supplies, and staff.

 

Airfare is not included in the standard Donation Goal. However, Global Brigades’ travel team can work with volunteers to book airfare and incorporate the airfare expense into the volunteer’s Donation Goal. If the volunteer no longer participates in a Brigade, their flight will be cancelled and the volunteer can rest assured that the funds will still support projects in the Global Brigades mission.

 

Select your home country's flag below to view the Donation Goals for the program and country you’re interested in supporting.

Donation Goals

 

Part 1: Volunteer Donation Goals

Once the relevant Donation Goal has been met, the volunteer will be eligible to join us on-the-ground to see their fundraising efforts put into action in their program and country of interest.

 

If a volunteer wishes to be part of a Brigade after meeting their Donation Goal, the volunteer must join a Global Brigades Chapter and join a future brigade with that Chapter. Selecting the specific brigade they would like to participate with before fundraising allows Global Brigades to facilitate program coordination and logistics in preparation for the upcoming brigade.

 *Brigades that would like to extend beyond 7 or 8 days can do so by increasing their Donation Goal by $100 for every extra day they would like to volunteer. The entire brigade must increase the length of the brigade. Starting in 2019, we are now offering a 2-brigade option in Honduras & Panama. The TWO Brigade option is available for all months except January, March or May. The Donation Goal is $1,490 for Honduras and $1,690 for Panama. Only the minimum number of volunteers have to stay for the second brigade if not all your volunteers are available to. Ask your Program Associate for more details.

Part 2: Annual Chapter Donation Goal

In order to be considered an active chapter and be eligible to participate in 2019 Brigades, Medical and Business Chapters must raise a minimum Annual Chapter Donation Goal of $1,500. Chapters that fully fundraise their chapter donation goal can fundraise to participate in as many brigades in as many countries as they would like.

 

For the Annual Chapter Donation Goal goal that must be met by December 31, 2018, this year, we’re providing Medical and Business Chapters with the option to instead increase the Donation Goals for each Brigade volunteer by $100. By selecting this option, Business and Medical Chapters will not have to raise their Annual Chapter Donation Goal to participate in Brigades for 2019.

 

Starting with any brigades arriving after January 1, 2020, Global Brigades will be discontinuing the Annual Chapter Donation Goal program and will instead increase Donation Goals by $100 per volunteer.

 

How is the Chapter Contribution used?

The Chapter Donation Goal directly supports Global Brigades' year-round health and development efforts, and is specific to each program. Each fund is a critical component of Global Brigades' Strategic Plan. Once a partner community has met specific health and economic development goals and brigades are no longer necessary, GB transitions projects fully to the community and offers follow-up with local staff.  Below are brief descriptions of the different program funds that are supported by group contributions.
