become a supporter

THE VISION

We have a model that puts both the consumers’ aspirations and destination needs first when it comes to travel philanthropy – the desire to give something back.

If your business wants to enable consumers to support destinations, then it makes sense to have a common, cost efficient platform that can be used worldwide to enable travellers and holidaymakers to donate into destinations through an assured giving process.

By working together we can keep the platform costs to a minimum, share good practice and maximize the support from travellers to the destinations, people and environments that make travel such a rewarding experience.

TravelPledge offers a mechanism for ensuring efficient, secure, and where possible gift aided, donations by travellers to specific initiatives in destinations – initiatives which have been screened and where there is a travel industry linkage.

TravelPledge offers and assured giving mechanism, we will not run our own projects, we seek to facilitate and maximize the donations going to locally delivered projects in destinations.
