Winspire Hotel Giveback: 30% of These Luxury Hotel Stays Go to Your Cause

Posted by Summy Lau

Winspire Hotel Giveback

Today, we are excited to introduce the Winspire Hotel Giveback: an opportunity for you and your donors to travel to some of the most in-demand destinations worldwide, all while supporting your organization.

For a limited time, donors can book discounted luxury hotels through Winspire at www.winspireme.com/giveback. Each booking costs significantly less than advertised prices on Expedia or Hotwire. Best of all, 30% of every booking goes to the charity of the traveler's choice.

If you have donors, board members, staff and more who like or plan to travel - this is a no-hassle way to capture extra funds.

Since 2008, Winspire has helped nonprofits raise over $48 million by providing and fulfilling unique no-risk travel packages for fundraising auctions, raffles and more.

Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for nonprofits, while providing great value to your donors.

To that end, we are excited to launch this year's Winspire Hotel Giveback, a unique fundraising opportunity that's an easy win-win. Here's how it works.

Step 1. Share the Giveback link

Anyone can purchase incredible boutique hotel and resort stays, all at a discount and supporting charity.

Send your donors to view all properties and details here: www.winspireme.com/giveback.

Giveback nights are valid from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 and subject to availability.

Step 2. Check availability

Once the traveler has found a desired property within the eligible dates, submit a contact form on the website or give our booking agents a call.

We will first check to make sure the property is available during those dates. Then, we'll confirm the traveler's interest before payment.

Step 3. Remind the traveler to mention your nonprofit.

During booking, we'll ask if there is a nonprofit the traveler would like to support with their purchase. Remind your donors to mention your cause by name. If you are supporting a specific chapter or branch, be sure to specify which one.

Step 4. Receive a check in the mail.

Once the transaction is complete, we'll send a check in the mail for 30% of each booking. (If you have more than one person supporting your charity through the program, we will combine the amounts in one check at the end of each month.)

Last year, we sent out checks to over 50 nonprofits worth more than $20,000.

With a longer period of eligibility and brand-new properties added to the program, we plan to raise much more in 2018 and 2019!
