Travel on Purpose™ is a for-profit company with a goal to change the way we travel. We organize trips and services for an income.
However, we turn right around and give that money back to our nonprofit partners. We work with well-vetted organizations located throughout the world and representing many areas of philanthropy. 100% of profits are donated.

Travel on Purpose incorporates the following 

core values into every trip we plan.



We love people and the opportunity to connect with them and learn from them. Locals are the experts. 
We believe travel dollars should stay in communities, supporting small businesses that bring opportunity and dignity. 

We are made for relationship. TOP trips will provide opportunities to meet locals and learn their stories, their history and their culture. This is the very best way to travel. Cooking classes and cultural walking tours are some of our favorites.

Travel is the best teacher. 
This education reminds us that there are a million ways to cook, dress, worship, and speak. As we learn, we grow in character and understanding.

As if we were a guest in someone's home, we enter foreign countries ready to respect and value their way of doing things. Travel is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in new opportunities and celebrate diversity that is found throughout the nations.

We vet organizations and find ways for TOP travelers to get involved. We have the privilege of sharing out of our abundance and want to be a blessing to the organizations and people we spend time with. Generosity might mean helping to fund a special project or becoming a monthly donor. Generosity might include sharing our skills or expertise or becoming an ambassador as we learn about the good work being done.

Travel inspires awe of God’s beautiful creation. 
As stewards, we believe that making choices that care for the environment ultimately honors God.

Favorite travel memory:
In 2019 our family traveled to Uganda and spent time at a school located in a rural area of the country. This vibrant community left a big impression on our hearts. Each person we met was filled with infectious joy. This, coupled with incredible safari experiences on the continent left us stunned with God's beautiful creation.

Becky Rosaler -


Artist. Adventurer. Gardener. Communicator. Writer. 


At 16, Becky hopped on a plane headed to Sydney and spent the summer immersed in Australian life as an exchange student. During college, she studied tropical ecology in Belize, Guatemala, and Costa Rica, world civilization in Europe, and history, geography, and culture in the Holy Land. This set her on a path of authentic travel experiences where embracing all-things local—food, lodging, organizations, people—has crafted unique trips and created rich memories.


Favorite travel memory:

One of my most memorable travel days involved visiting a community in the Dominican Republic where we spent the entire day learning about chocolate! From planting cacao seedlings, to harvesting pods, seeing the fermentation and drying process, learning about organic practices, and finally shelling, roasting, and grinding the nibs into a paste, I was in awe. It was so special spending the day with farming families as they shared their lives with us.

Lisa Mickley -


Explorer. Adventurer. Fitness Enthusiast. Reader. Administrator. Detailer.


Each year during Lisa's childhood, her parents made it a priority to do at least one family vacation.  With a limited budget, travels were limited to the states and most of them were camping in a tent.  No matter the destination, the love of travel has deep roots from early childhood. History, cultures, food, people, God's creation and adventures  make up rich travel experiences. Lisa's family also loves to travel and explore as well ... and as a Mom, she strives to use travel as a way to "enhance" learning.


Favorite travel memory:

My favorite travel memories always include my favorites - family, close friends, exploring new places, culture, food, meeting strangers that become fast new friends, sipping wine and having adventures.  Some of these include but certainly not limited to...  running a marathon through Rome, sailing on a gulet with friends in Croatia, reading scripture from Paul's sermon on Mars Hill in Athens, sharing food and delighting in it -  whether it be gathering produce from a farm in Hawaii or a vineyard in Italy, fishing on Lake Michigan with my Dad, driving through the countryside of Ireland, or hiking a glacier in Iceland. Go. Do. Explore. Embrace. You can always sleep later at home.
