Best Practice for Event Sites
We recommend putting it on its own page on the event site, with new navigation (replacing Parking with Get There or some similar wording). This will give you the best reporting on actual use of the tool, as it will reflect VIEWS when someone views it on purpose, versus it being part of a long, scrolling home page.
Increase your impact when your supporters use your TravelingToGive smart giving trip tool with every trip they take.
Not only will your supporters like giving to your cause with their travel purchases, they will love the proximity-based hotel search a TravelingToGive smart giving trip tool provides. After all, proximity matters.
Life on the road is easier when you stay nearby the reason for the trip. Our auto lookup pulls up the full address where you are actually going. Then searches across 700,000 hotels to find the closest hotels. Your supporters save time and money while at their destination.
It doesn’t cost you anything to fundraise with TravelingToGive. It’s just takes your promotion of a new way for supporters to book hotels to benefit your charity. Easy, huh?
Two ways to work it: let us host your tool on our TravelingToGive.com site, secured by your unique login and password. Or integrate it on your site by grabbing the embed code. Just set up an account to begin.
With a TravelingToGive smart giving trip tool, every trip can matter to your charity. We donate the proceeds quarterly to you (based on receipt of our commissions from travel bookings).
As an example, for a 2 night hotel booking with a daily rate of $200, your donation would be approximately $10.00. As the average daily rate and length of stay goes up, so does the donation.
We know that with a non-profit, every dollar matters. If you’d like to calculate the potential annual impact of travel made by your organization’s supporters, click the button below and choose Smart Giving.
