Fundraising and funding
Based on our own experience, we know that costs are one of the major limiting factors preventing projects from reaching their objectives or keeping people from getting involved.
EnScope uses its experience to help those who travel with us to raise the funds required to cover the costs of their projects!
Fundraising is an essential and critical step in any project. Often challenging, sometimes frustrating, successful fundraising may appear unreachable at first sight. However, funding opportunities are highly diverse and numerous volunteers, students and researchers have been successful in fully financing their participation to projects around the world.
General Fundraising Activities & Sponsorship
Whether you are a volunteer, a student, a researcher, or just anyone interested in running a value-added project, there is a wealth of fundraising opportunities that can be envisaged.
From sponsored events to sponsoring requests, raffles or online fundraising campaigns (e.g. GoGetFunding,…)… creativity is your only limitation!
Once project participation is confirmed, a meeting is organised between EnScope fundraising experts and the participant in order to advise on how to setup an efficient fundraising campaign!
The are numerous funding options, many of which have been succesfully secured to take part in our projects. EnScope has consolidated these into a funding application guide available to everyone taking part in our projects or visiting one of our field stations. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details
You have some great ideas for new projects in the context of sustainable development but don’t know how to go from “idea” to “feasible project”? EnScope can help you to Develop a new project.
Alternatively, EnScope can also support the field implementation of your own project through EnScope Field stations and Logistical support.
Events, training and inductions
EnScope organises or takes part in a number of events with a view of raising support for the EnScope projects or our students and volunteers, as well as to spread the word on our actions. These are also an opportunity for you to meet us in person and for us to answer any questions you may have. In addition, we aim to plan a number of training/events aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of students and early career professionals on topics relevant to sustainable development and nature conservation.
Please get in touch if you would like to join us for any of those events.
We encourage you to read carefully the following section that provide relevant information on insurances and travel arrangements to prepare your trip.
Medical & Travel Insurances
A travel insurance is mandatory for everyone taking part in an EnScope project or travelling to one of our field stations. It should cover all activities detailed in the “Project page” and provides cover for emergency medical repatriation. Please ensure that your policy covers you for adventurous and light manual work.
You are entirely free to pick the travel insurance of your choice. At EnScope, we find that two travel insurance companies really stand out in terms of support, extent of cover and reliability: True Traveller and World Nomads. Both are global companies covering millions of travellers around the world and with a long standing experience in the business. If you opt for True Traveller, please ensure that you select the “Adventure Pack” option as this will ensure that you will be adequately covered for all project activities.
For projects requiring scuba diving, a dedicated dive insurance is mandatory. In our view, DAN (Divers Alert Network) provides the most reliable and comprehensive diving insurance policies, and they are widely recognised for their extensive network for local support and vast experience in management of diving emergencies. However if you have subscribed for a True Traveller insurance with the Adventure Pack option, registering for a DAN cover is not mandatory as the Adventure Pack includes many of the benefits provided by a DAN cover and generally not included in other travel insurance packages.
