What We Do

We’re a nonprofit on a mission to empower active people to make philanthropy a part of their individual lifestyles.
We give active volunteers, intrepid travelers, and personal achievers the ability to combine their passion for doing with raising financial support for the causes that matter to them most.

So, when you’re volunteering, traveling, or achieving — ascending the heights of Kilimanjaro, trekking the Basque Coast, cleaning up the Connecticut River, or banging nails for Habit For Humanity — you’ll be raising donations for a charitable organization of your own choice — one that’s working to find a cure; alleviate poverty; aid disaster recovery; protect the environment; improve education; and more. Journey Gives™ travelers often make their trip in honor, in celebration, or in memory of someone close to them. Many carry yellow ribbons in those name(s) on their chosen journey.

This is about scaling up. You use your personal event to create a community of givers. By reaching out to family, friends, and online connections — before, during, and after the event — you raise awareness around a critical need. You share your journey. You turn an individual and meaningful endeavor into something more: a collective and crucial mission.

That’s it. We charge you nothing for this service. We don’t even require that you donate funds yourself. All we do is make it easy for you to raise awareness and money for the cause of your choice. We’ll set you up with a customized fundraising page with all the trimmings. All you’ll have to do is send the link to whoever you want to see it: friends and family, Facebook friends, colleagues — you decide. And it really works.

You know how a memorable event can change your life. Journey Gives™ allows you to change the lives of many. Turn your next achievement into a fundraising challenge. Choose what you want to do. Pick a cause. We’ll help you do the rest.
