How their Tasmanian Inspired Adventure smashed ROI
With wildfires raging across Europe and public pressure on the Australian Government to reduce climate pollution in line with the rest of the world, climate change remains a hot topic ahead of the 2021 G20 Summit this October.
The Climate Council is leading the charge for climate change in Australia, providing expert advice to the Australian public and offering solutions based on science.
In March this year, they embarked on an Inspired Adventure to Tasmania to take action against the worsening climate crisis and support their extreme weather work.
The adventure was so popular that a second departure was announced, and both adventures filled well in advance, with 34 participants in total.
“The treks were the first fundraising trips I worked on and it was great to have support from Inspired Adventures,” says Ellyce from the Climate Council.
“The team was always prepared to help, and I’m so grateful for how well we worked together to deliver a great experience for our supporters and an amazing fundraising outcome.”
The combined fundraising total for the two departures was over $147,600 – more than double the anticipated fundraising goal.
“We’re so pleased with the fundraising efforts of our two teams and the support provided by Inspired Adventures.”
“We’re so pleased with the fundraising efforts of our two teams and the support from Inspired Adventures,” says Ellyce. “The teams exceeded expectations, with many participants completely smashing their $3,500 target, and one even reaching $10,000!
“It's rare for us to get face-to-face with our supporters, so the treks were an amazing opportunity to connect. Throughout the journey, we built special relationships with our supporters. And more importantly, the teams felt like they had created their own special community and connections with each other over their shared concern for climate change.
“It was great to have support from Inspired Adventures. The team was always prepared to help, and I’m so grateful for how well we worked together to deliver a great experience for our supporters and an amazing fundraising outcome.”
“Since the adventures, many of our participants have expressed interest in doing more for the Climate Council and climate action – they’ve been a life-changing experience for both our supporters and staff.”
It’s so humbling to know our adventures provide an opportunity for people to connect with causes they’re passionate about, inspiring them to enact real and lasting change in the world – even Inspired Adventures is on its own climate change crusade!
