Patreon Program Relaunch

16 June, 2023 | Blog, News

We’re excited to announce that we’re reviving our Patreon project, an essential piece of our pursuit of improving NomadMania constantly. But before we dive into the details, let’s discuss how vital your continuous support has been and how much it will help NomadMania in the future.

NomadMania has always been and will continue to be a free-to-join community. We’ve been a registered non-profit organisation in Greece since October 2019. While our aspirations outweigh our means, any extra help we get lets us keep doing our work without cutting corners. That’s why we started using Patreon.

NomadMania Patreon

For those new to Patreon, it’s a powerful crowdfunding platform that allows creators to breathe life into their projects by directly supporting patrons who believe in their mission. It’s a digital canvas where ideas meet funding and dreams encounter the means to come alive.

Highlights from our Journey

We’ve learned a lot from our Patreon journey. Our Scholarship Fund, created from generous donations from patrons like you, is a great example. Let’s recall the journey of Arlene and Ineza, two ambitious law students from Rwanda. Our travel scholarship gave them their first global exploration experience, a trip through Tanzania, including the busy streets and peaceful beaches of Dar es Salaam and the magical island of Zanzibar, and a visit to Nairobi, Kenya.

Their story is more than a travel adventure. It shows the power of travel to change lives and create cross-cultural dialogues. As a NomadMania patron, you help craft such narratives, making travel more accessible and nurturing a more inclusive and diverse world of exploration.

Our Road Ahead

We find ourselves at an exciting moment at NomadMania, where transformation is not just a vision but an experienced reality. Our team has recently welcomed new talents, injecting fresh energy and perspectives into our collective. This infusion has accelerated our pursuit of ambitious ideas, fueling our desire to enhance your experience with NomadMania.

With the dynamic NomadMania partner Orest Zub at the helm of operations, Eugene Petrus driving our marketing vision, and a devoted and hardworking Executive Committee, we are excited to redefine our boundaries. But, to reach our ambitious goals, we need your continued support.

Your contributions will help us:

  • Add new features to our website and mobile app and improve user experience
  • Enhance unique travel experiences through our Series and M@P
  • Organise meaningful events for community members
  • Develop NomadMania awards further
  • Enhance NomadMania visibility on social media

Welcoming Change

As a growing community of explorers, we are committed to our patrons. We believe that Patreon is about more than funding. It’s about building a solid relationship with you. In this spirit, we’re enhancing our presence on Patreon to build deeper connections, engage more, and ensure our communications are meaningful.
