To help students come up with fundraising ideas when planning for their study abroad exchange, please be aware of the top fundraising ideas website that lists many fundraising ideas. The site also features students who have been successful in raising money for their AFS program.
You can find the Top Fundraising Ideas website here: https://www.afsusa.org/study-abroad/scholarships/fundraising/
You can also encourage students to utilize Sponsor an AFSer, our FREE online fundraising tool similar to Go Fund Me, allowing students to fundraise using their personal networks (friends, family, school). The donations are applied directly to the AFS program fee. To learn more, check out the page here or contact email@example.com for more info!
If you have stories of students who have been successful with their fundraising, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
You can also visit the fundraising FAQ page on the AFS-USA website for more information and ideas:
