Raise Money and Build Contributor Loyalty

tours as fundraisersThe Traveling Professor runs small group tours for adults to Paris, Italy, Norway, Ireland, and Peru.   Most of the time, travelers come together from different parts of North America for a week or so to enjoy a culturally enriching and fun adventure.  However, I have run tours for charitable or non-profit organizations where one of the objectives is to raise money for the group or a particular cause.  In this blog post I will describe the benefits of running a tour for as a fundraiser.

Tours as Fund Raisers

A Great Way to Raise Money for Your Organization

fundraising toursI have been running Traveling Professor tours since the publication of The Traveling Professor's Guide to Paris in 2009.   Most of those tours are for individuals or pairs of travelers who want to join a small group tour to Italy or Paris.  However, private groups have approached me recently about running a tour for their organization as a fundraiser.   For instance, there is a church group who does missionary work in South America who I am scheduled to run a tour for.  Another civic organization from the Midwest has me taking a  private group.   I am also putting together a proposal from a cultural organization for a tour to Paris where we will feature classical music performances in addition to other sights.   Read more about using a tour to Paris, Italy or South America as a fund raiser.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
