Donating Credit Card & Airline Points for Flights
Paying for our participants' flights is one of our biggest costs. Therefore, we accept credit card and airline points to help cover these costs. Because it is not possible to donate points directly to True North Treks, those who wish to give points must first pledge a point amount (must be enough to cover at least 1 flight) and at the time of booking the flight, the donor must actually purchase the flight on behalf of the participant. We will supply the donor with all necessary information and flight/schedule preferences, and ask that a True North Treks representative be added to the reservation notifications to stay abreast of any changes.
If you are interested in making a donation of credit card or airline points, please complete the brief form below with the amount of points you would like to pledge, including the name of the credit card or airline rewards program. Because True North Treks is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, your donation may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes for the value of the ticket you purchase. Following payment of the flight using your points, you will be provided with a thank you letter and acknowledgement from True North Treks, including the cost of the flight. It is a good idea to consult with a tax adviser or the IRS to determine whether your contribution is indeed deductible.
