Fundraising

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.

Testimonies

“Through my experience with FOCUS Missions and the Benedict XVI Institute, my eyes were opened to the endless possibilities that we all have to serve others. I realized that mission work is just one facet through which we can serve. We are all called to be Jesus’ hands and feet wherever we go, be it at school, at work, at the airport, or even while waiting in a line at a store. Working with people in Haiti, I could see that although I could not solve their problems, I could be a true sister and give them genuine love.”
