Shareholder Fundraising allows you to connect with family members, friends, teachers, neighbors, or anyone else that you think might be interested in supporting your Quest experience. Quest groups put together a shareholder "prospectus" that describes the Quest and introduces the participants, and then send it out with an invitation to purchase "shares" in the Quest. The money that shareholders invest goes directly to lowering the out-of-pocket costs for the student that they choose to sponsor. After the Quest is over, the Quest groups sponsor a shareholder dinner to share stories and reflections from the adventure and say thank you. Being a shareholder gives important people in your life an opportunity to invest in a cause they care about deeply: you!
Over the years, each student that has participated in Shareholder Fundraising has received a significant boost in paying for their Quest. Some even have had their whole Quest covered by shareholder contributions. Please don't hesitate to use this great tool for making your Quest a reality.
We’d be happy to talk more with you about Shareholder Fundraising and the other things you can do to help make your Quest more affordable.
