Fundraising Partnership

In order to assist Roadies with their fundraising efforts to intern, volunteer or study abroad in Argentina, Road has partnered with the professional crowd-funding website Fund & Seek. The site creates a fundraising page for you, allowing you to set financial goals, tell your story (including what you want to do in Argentina and why friends, family and strangers should support you), use social media platforms to notify your friends and family of your fundraising efforts, and provides financial tools for you to receive payments and track your progress. The system is very effective and some users have raised over $2500 US Dollars for their trip aborad through Fund & Seek crowdfunding.
