We believe that every person, regardless of budget or background, should have the opportunity to volunteer in a Service Learning Trip if they are passionate about the work. That is why we created a few different fundraising methods and scholarship opportunities for MEDLIFErs around the world. Check out the options below, and reach out to [email protected] if you have any questions.

As you create more and more new Chapters, you will become eligible for rewards, ranging from travel discounts to a free Service Learning Trip including flights!

Under United States tax law and regulations, a donation to MEDLIFE is 100% tax-deductible by the person donating. However, a donation given to MyMovement that reduces a student’s volunteering costs in a mobile clinic is not tax-deductible. If donors have general questions about whether donations to MEDLIFE are tax-deductible, they can call MEDLIFE’S U.S.-based office at 1-844-MEDLIFE (1-844-633-5433). However, specific questions about the deductibility of contributions should be directed to the donor’s qualified tax advisor.

MEDLIFE is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Not only was I able to participate in a week long Mobile Clinic, shadowing doctors of all types of specialties including pharmacy, dentistry, gynecology, and more, but I was also able to learn about the culture and visit incredible places.

One thing that I really loved about this trip was that MEDLIFE made sure that the volunteers got an understanding of the complexity of issues that lead to underprivileged people in communities outside of the main city

Whether it was basketball with the local kids, assisting the doctors, talking with families, building washrooms, holding babies, or spending time with the people who were on the SLT with me, this was an amazing opportunity that I would do over and over again.

Our family had the privilege of participating in multiple trips with Nick [founder] and his amazing staff. Their expertise made the trips unforgettable while instilling in my boys the fundamentals of good character: selflessness, compassion, and empathy.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
