Fundraising and Donation

This is an amazing, life-changing opportunity but we understand it can also be overwhelming. Airfare, travel insurance, and program fees can be daunting.

Don’t let it put you off though!  There are many ways to fundraise for your trip, including traditional scholarships, grants, crowdfunding, and good old-fashioned bake sales.

Raising the funds needed for a once in a lifetime trip can be hard work and requires commitment, but it will be 100% worth it. Visit our Help Center  for more information about fundraising and check our Fundraising Guide.

Help us close the gap in healthcare! Your donation will bring us closer to our goal. A little help goes a long way.

We only collect the required information to process your donation. We work with trusted third-party payment processors, so your information will be kept confidential. For further details, please read our Privacy Policy.

To make your donation, please select your method of preference and fill out the form. Once the form is completed you will be redirected to a secure page to finalize the payment process.
