IS IT SAFE?

COTH can not guarantee your safety in any country, state, or province that you happen to visit. However, with some locations being third-world countries we understand travels can sometimes pose a higher risk. With this said, groups’ safety is our utmost concern. If there is ever an instance when COTH thinks we need to postpone trips or get teams out of the country, we will not hesitate to make that decision.

HOW DO I RAISE MONEY?

Each missions year, the team will do several team fundraisers. However, be aware that these fundraisers are split among all team members and you should not fully rely on these to raise your funds. Instead, located on the documents page is a sample support letter. You should send these out as soon as you decide to go on a trip. This will be one of the best ways to fundraise.
