From our founder: Gayla Simmons
As a former development professional in the nonprofit world, I know how challenging raising funds can be. I also understand the value of partnering with organizations that offer real solutions to those challenges. After leaving the nonprofit world in late 2012, I knew that I wanted to find a way to combine my three passions, nonprofits, marketing and travel – into a new venture.
The concept for MyCharityTrip.com came after hours of research into the travel industry, networking with resort management companies, private vacation homeowners and other nonprofit leaders. Together, we created a truly unique platform to help nonprofits raise more money, help resorts fill their rooms, and give your donors fantastic vacations. I am excited that you’ve chosen to visit and I look forward to serving you!
