Fund-raising and Internet Tools


Part of CGI’s mission is to empower others. Two critically important areas are fundraising and web 2.0 tools. If you click on this link you will see a table we created that provides an up-to-date listing of many such sites, BUT it also explains what they do, informs you how much they charge for transaction fees, gives you my opinion as to what my experience has been with them, and other helpful notes and pieces of advice that I think you will find to be a helpful timesaver.

Flight Discounts


www.flyforgood.com

 

If you are volunteering on a CGI project you may qualify for discounted roundtrip airfare. Airlines select routes around the world that are common for humanitarian travelers and discount them based upon season and availability.

 

Some routes do not have discounted fares. Also, there are no discounted rates on domestic travel. In these cases, Travel for Good searches for the lowest published fare they can find so you can still get a great price on your airfare with the backing of the Fly for Good service team.


 

 

Benefits of Humanitarian Tickets Beyond the Fares

Besides being able to offer discounts on our humanitarian contracts, airlines also provide additional benefits. Benefits included, but are not limited to:

  1. Changes to airline tickets with reduced fees often 50-75% lower than regular tickets
  2. Refundable fares with reduces penalties often 50-75% lower than regular tickets.
  3. Free stopovers to cities while traveling internationally.
  4. Add additional piece of luggage beyond the normal 2 piece rule.
