Ep. 96: Getaway2Give: Transforming the Worlds of Fundraising & Vacationing | with Adam Capes

The Daily Helping

Today our expert guest is Adam Capes, the co-founder and President of Getaway2Give. Adam is a social entrepreneur helping people create amazing vacation experiences, while changing the world of fundraising as we know it. Adam has been passionate about raising money to help people since was in first grade, when he had a backyard fair to support individuals diagnosed with Leukemia. That experience gave him a high he had never experienced before, and it inadvertently taught him that the act of giving is actually as psychologically gratifying (if not moreso) than the act of receiving. What Adam found is that one of the most effective strategies for fundraising is providing unmatched, memorable vacations. So, at Getaway2Give, they give people a white-glove concierge experience – a personal Guest Experience Manager helps plan the details, then a Destination Manager greets guests on site and makes certain everything goes as planned throughout the entire experience – in return for a charitable contribution that supports others who really need help. Although this style of fundraising has typically only been part of charity fundraisers, Getaway2Give offers packages to anyone looking to go on a great vacation, without doing all of the work that’s often involved with going out of town. The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway “Start with why. Figure out what your why is, what your bigger purpose is, what you’re passionate about, what drives you, and follow that. They say when the Why is strong enough, the How is easy.” -- Thank you for joining us on The Daily Helping with Dr. Shuster.

The Entrepreneur's MBA with Adam Kipnes

Adam Capes is the Co-Founder and President of Getaway2Give, a company changing the way non-profits raise money and people think about vacations. Their mission is to be the best in the country at helping charities and schools raise money, and they’ve helped raise over $10M so far. Adam began his journey to being a Social Entrepreneur as co-founder and president of a luxury residence fund called Equity Estates.

Adam helped raise $60M for this unique equity based fund where members own the homes they vacation in. At one prestigious gala in Aspen, Colorado, Adam had an “Aha” moment and decided to start Getaway2Give to help change the worlds of fundraising and vacations. Adam says, “At Getaway2Give, we’re incredibly passionate about two things – helping charities raise significant money and the lasting importance and memories made from meaningful vacation experiences.”www.gataway2give.com Learn more about your ad choices.
