The cost for mission trips at Bethel are calculated after your team has completed their fundraising efforts. It's our goal to cover as much of the expense as possible through generous donations from family, friends, and other supporters.
Here's how the process works:
To raise funds towards the team goal, each team member will send out at least 50 support letters. We'll provide all the needed materials and mail out your letters. We'll also provide a list of your generous donors so you can send them each a thank you card, a post card en route, and a follow-up note after your trip.
All students will learn more about the fundraising process at the trip kickoff meeting.
All donations are due 1 week before the trip. On that date, any remaining funds will need to be paid by the student.
Your team may also decide to do group fundraising events and activities. We ask that each team submit a fundraising plan to campus ministries staff for approval before fundraising begins.
Here's what's covered:
If students pay for any of the above, they must turn in a receipt as soon as possible in order to be reimbursed.
Students should take into account possible expenses not covered by trip costs:
After you've paid your deposit, we expect you will go on the trip. If you decide not to go, you will be financially responsible for all costs or any cancellation fees associated with the trip.
