WIN- WIN -WIN SITUATION
Raise Much Needed Cash For Your Worthy Cause The No Risk Fun Way
And Your Group Sails At Special Reduced Rates
Cruising is the fastest growing segment in the vacation market and most people have at least dreamed of taking a cruise.
A "Fun"d raiser cruise is therefore very profitable and easy to promote if properly done. " Fun"d raising profits of $5000 to 20,000 are not uncommon for an organization's first attempt and if the first one is successful it can easily become a self- perpetuating annual event.
We are experts in the cruise field and are very easy and flexible to work with. We will help you decide on the sailing that best meets your group's desires and make the most profit for you.
We represent all cruise lines and can arrange a "fun"d raiser cruise on any of them. Depending on the line, sailing and time of year we can offer between $50 to $100 donation per stateroom that your group sails with. If you plan ahead and are flexible, we can almost always find a cruise that will give you the maximum donation. Moreover, we negotiate the lowest cruise prices so you can add a mark up to increase the funds raised. You can also raffle tickets for a cruise to increase your 'fun"d raising profits.
How It Works
Consult With Cruise Innovations:
We have been in business since 1996 and have been on over 70 ships.
We have sailed on almost every class of ship and have excellent working relationship with all of the cruise lines, allowing you to make the most of your "fun" d raiser.
Determine When And Where You Want To Sail:
We know all of the destinations very well and can offer suggestions on where to cruise based on some information about the people you plan to promote to.
We recommend planning your event at least one year in advance so that we can negotiate the best prices and have adequate time to successfully promote it. We have had success with less lead time but only with groups that were ready to aggressively promote.
Prices vary by season. We can help you determine what is best for you and your group.
Develop A Plan To Promote Your "Fun"d Raiser:
We can offer suggestions and provide marketing material. We will also help with writing press releases to take advantage of free advertising. We can also help set up a facebook page promoting your event. We suggest selling raffle tickets for a free cruise to increase your profits. ( see below on how to get your raffled cabin for free)
How Much Can You Earn:
On most 7 night sailings we can offer between $50 to $100 per cabin sold as a "fun"d raising profit. We negotiate the lowest cruise prices so you can add a mark up to increase the funds raised.
Moreover, depending on the number of cabins sold you can earn free berths ( not including taxes and fees) as an added bonus. You can use these "frees" to offset the cost of the raffled cruise so that you have 100% profit on the tickets sold or you can use them to reward someone in your group. If you chose we will give you the equivalent amount in cash as added fund raising profits.
The Best Part:
There is absolutely no financial risk for your organization.
We lock in the discounted prices and people who want to sail contact us for more information and make deposits and payments to us. We will keep you updated as people book.
Your groups only responsibility is to PROMOTE , EXCITE , AND PROMOTE SOME MORE.
We look forward to answering any questions,
Ken and Carol
We know it is important for your organization to raise money. Cruise Innovations realizes the importance of donating to worthy causes. That's why we have partnered with Sandals, Beaches and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts to support your fundraiser efforts.
How It Works:
Simply refer anyone to Cruise Innovations . We will then give your charity $100 for all bookings of 6 nights or more at any Sandals, Beaches or Grand Pineapple Beach. Moreover, if you let us set-up a table or booth at one of your other fundraiser events, or you send out a dedicated email blast regarding our program, Sandals will match our donation and give an additional $100 for every booking made within 14 days of the event or email for bookings into a concierge room category or above.
That’s a total $200 donation for potentially every vacation package booked just for referring people to us. We can help you with promotional ideas like adding links to your website, use of social media and free press releases to get started.
Just give us a call to begin this program because we must first let Sandals know that we believe that your oganization is worthy of both our and their donation.
