Group Discounts (2 or More People) for Service-Learning Programs

Bring family and friends... and save! If a service-learning participant refers a friend or family member to another service-learning program, he or she will receive a discount of 10% off the second participant's fees. Discount applies for each additional referral, so the more friends you bring, the cheaper your service-learning program becomes! (Participants referred must start projects on the same date for the discount to apply, but may work on different projects.) Please contact us for large group discounts (8 or more people). Returning volunteers also receive a discount of 10% off the fees of their second program. Please note that group discounts do not apply for using the Segal Award.

 

Fundraising Assistance for GSC Volunteers

It is possible to raise part or all of your programs fees through a variety of fundraising activities! It has been done in the past by many GSC volunteers, and we have put together a fundraising toolkit to get you started. Inside this toolkit you will find a history of GSC and its successful international service programs, examples of successful fundraising activities, sample fundraising letters, and useful internet and printed resources. Please fill out a Request for Information Form and note in the "What can we help you with?" field that you would like to have the GSC Fundraising Toolkit sent to you.
