SELECTING A CHARITY

The key to making a significant impact with your fundraising climb is to choose a cause that you feel deeply connected to. It could be a foundation that supports research for a disease that has affected a loved one, or a cause that aids sick children. You must ask yourself – what charities tug at your heartstrings? Because when your passion aligns with your purpose, you’ll be able to make the most significant impact possible.

But it’s not just about choosing any foundation – it’s important to pick a reputable organization that prioritizes allocating a high percentage of funds towards the actual cause, rather than towardsadministrative expenses.

Choose a cause that truly resonates with you and work together to make a difference. With proper research and a heart full of passion, you can ensure that every dollar raised goes towards making a tangible impact in the lives of those in need.

Below here, we we’ve compiled a list of online non-profit monitoring sites that can assist you in researching the performance ratings and effectiveness of many different foundations.

  • GuideStar.org This is an information service reporting on 2.5 million organizations.
  • CharityNavigator.org Evaluates U.S. charities and does not accept advertising or donations from the organizations it evaluates.
  • CharityWatch.org Provides information about charities accountability.
  • Give.org Reports on charities’ transparency.

Selecting A Climb Date

The choice of a date for the climb is important. It determines the number of climbers you can attract and the amount time you have for fundraising before the climb. That is why we suggest planning the charity climb a year in advance. This gives you ample time to educate your fundraising team and find sponsors and donors.

It’s absolutely crucial to remember that the funds raised must go directly to the charity of your choosing and should not be used to cover the costs of the climb itself. This is a non-negotiable point, and we urge you to keep it at the forefront of your planning efforts. If you find yourself unsure about the optimal dates and routes for your climb, don’t hesitate to contact us. We here to guide you through every step of the planning process.

FINDING SPONSORS

Let’s talk about the next steps once you’ve selected your charity to support. First up, you need to get in touch with Kilimanjaro Heroes and figure out the best date for your climb.

Next, it’s time to start hunting for sponsors. Donations and gear are what you’re after here. Keep in mind, the more sponsors you can secure, the more money you can raise for your chosen charity. There are two types of sponsors you’ll be targeting: businesses and personal. Businesses love publicity, so make sure you approach them with that in mind. As for personal sponsors, these are the folks you know – friends, family, acquaintances – who are willing to help support your fundraising efforts.

So, get out there and start hustling! With a little bit of strategy and hard work, you’ll be on your way to raising the necessary funds and gear to make your climb a success.

Start with Friends, Family & Businesses

OK, it’s time to start spreading the word and assembling your team. You’ve got a climb to conquer, and you’re going to need all the support you can get. Now, when it comes to fundraising, there are plenty of options available to you. One option is to keep it simple and throw a small event, with a donation as the price of admission. Another option is to reach out to local businesses and see if they’re willing to donate a product or service, which you can then raffle off to raise funds.

Regardless of the fundraising method you choose, it’s important to remember that all funds raised must go directly to the charity you’re supporting, and not towards covering the expenses of the climb.

Use Crowdfunding Websites

Alright, let’s dive into the world of charity fundraising for climbers. There are a handful of online companies out there that provide a platform for climbers to build a page for their cause and collect donations directly through their website. It’s a great service, but keep in mind that it does come at a cost. The fees charged by these companies are relatively small, but it’s important to research and compare them before making a decision. After all, the higher the fee, the less you have to put towards your chosen charity.

At the end of the day, it’s all about weighing the pros and cons and deciding if the convenience and efficiency of using one of these online platforms is worth the cost. So, do your research, compare fees, and make the choice that’s right for you and your fundraising efforts.

Here are a few of the more well-known crowdfunding sites:

  • Go Fund Me
  • Snowball
  • Mighty Cause
  • CauseVox

Which Route to Climb?

Any one of our routes can make for an awesome charity climb. It’s totally up to you to decide which one you want to tackle. Just keep in mind that the longer the route, the easier it is to acclimatize, increasing the number of people that make it to the summit.

Since all charity climbs are Private Climbs, you have the freedom to choose the date and route that works best for you and your team.

So, whether you want to take on the Lemosho route or the Machame route or the Northern Circuit route, the choice is yours. It’s all about finding the climb that resonates with you and your cause, and making it a success.

We look forward to reading from you.
