Encore Tours is excited to announce our new tool to help passengers afford going on a performance tour.
There's no better gift to receive (or give) than a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience. To help facilitate this, Encore Tours now offers a Personal Fundraising platform for every participant who has signed up for a tour.
How does it work?
Participants will find a "Personal Fundraising" link in their online account.
This takes them to a Dashboard where they can easily set up and click through to their customized Personal Fundraising page. Here, passengers can personalize their page by editing the fundraising goal, header, personal statement, and photo of themselves.
Then, participants can copy and share their unique fundraising page URL with family and friends via email or social media.
It's a great way for enrolled passengers to demonstrate their enthusiasm for the trip and encourage loved ones to invest in their life-changing performance tour. And it's a valuable tool for directors to show to other passengers who are interested in traveling with them but may have concerns about affording a tour.
Encore believes that everyone should be able to have the opportunity to see the world, perform overseas, and grow as an individual and an ensemble on a performance tour. This tool will provide passengers with the tools to raise funds from their family, friends, and personal networks.
Contact us to learn more about our Personal Fundraising Pages and to talk with someone about where you’d like to take your ensemble on a performance tour!
