Fundraise with Encore’s Fabulous Fundraiser


What’s all this about a fabulous fundraiser?

We’re dedicated to helping your group travel abroad! When you organize a trip with Encore Tours, we offer a complimentary fundraising opportunity that includes:

  • A 5-day trip to Paris or London for two
  • Round-trip airfare
  • Breakfast daily
  • Hotel accommodations in central city locations for 3 nights

Winners can select either Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend or Veterans Day Weekend for their travel. This trip is yours to leverage in your fundraising efforts—whether you raffle it off to your community or use it as a grand prize in another event, the possibilities are endless!

There’s no limit to how much you can raise, so get started early and make sure you don’t leave anyone behind. Use this trip however you want: sell the chance to win the trip to members of your community, offer it as a grand prize at another fundraiser…it’s up to you!

Don’t forget to check out our other fundraising suggestions that help groups get abroad. And remember, we offer scholarships, too!

Tips for Success

  • Check with your local laws to make sure “raffles” are allowed. Handle appropriate state tax forms as necessary.
  • Have individuals sell the tickets. Recommended selling prices range from $10 to $50 for each ticket. Some groups may wish to provide a “discount” for those who purchase multiple tickets. Example: Individual tickets are $10; a bundle of six tickets are $50.
  • Participants keep a percentage; the group receives the rest. Determine a percentage that your participants get to keep for every ticket they sell individually. Dedicate a small amount of each ticket sold to go towards the other group’s trip costs.
  • Ask for help! If you need suggestions from other Group Leaders who have successfully raised money with Encore’s fundraiser, contact us for a reference.
  • Announce the winner at your concert. Boost your audience attendance in the process of fundraising!
