How much do trips cost?

Are Global Outreach donations tax-deductible?

The CDC website lists multiple recommended vaccinations for the country I'm going to… Does that mean I need to get them all?
No, just because the CDC recommends a vaccine for a certain country does not mean that Global Outreach participants need the vaccine to be safe on their trip. Global Outreach considers all recommended vaccinations for each country and determines which will be necessary based on the specific mission sites and situations students will encounter. Those vaccinations deemed necessary for specific trips are budgeted in to student fundraising goals and provided at the Searcy Medical Center.
