    My friends and I are planning a road trip around the country for next year. We are all college students and have low funds. We heard that some people get corporations to sponser them. If anyone out there knows anything about that I would be very interested in hearing about it.

    Thank You

    I can't provide any assistance here, but would love to learn more about this if you find anything.

    The only thing we've come up with is to try and get the support of a charity like the American Cancer Society so that we can raise money.

    Default Interesting, but ...

    How would support from the American Cancer Society help? What would you be doing for them in exchange?

    Default Got have the hook -- if you want the green!

    Corporations of any type rarely sponsor folks to go on road trip lark. You have to have a marketable hook that matches with one of their marketing goals. Do your research -- see if a local company would be interested in securing some national exposure. RTA has worked for the ACS -- but road promotional work leaves 0% of time for exploring or going to national parks, etc.

    There are a number of resources for funding -- but you should expect to spend 10-14 hours per day in support of the commercial/charitable project.

    This probably has something to do with driving a company vehicle across country that is elaborately decorated for advertisement, like Volkswagen and Snapple, giant hot dog mobiles, etc.

    Regarding those resources, what's involved? What's the funding like? Where should I go to get more information?
