We know it can be daunting when you are faced with the prospect of raising the required funds to take part in a GVI program. However, with proper planning, a good imagination and lots of friendly determination, fundraising will be successful and can even be fun!
We are here to support you all the way and we have formed a partnership with a well know fundraising and crowd funding organisation called Gofundme. Gofundme allows GVI volunteers to access professional fundraising resources and services. You can set up your own fundraiser campaign for your project and share the links through social media networks so friends and family can sponsor you online. To get started simply click the link to the GVI Gofundme page below and complete a profile.
We also have lots of hints and tips on tried and tested methods of fundraising, and we can provide you with additional materials and information specific to your program to help you in your fundraising campaign. Many of the GVI team had to raise funds for their own overseas volunteering and we have all helped volunteers fundraise for their own GVI programs. By compiling our fundraising wisdom into a downloadable Fundraising Guide, we hope to give you useful and encouraging ideas to set up your own fundraising campaign. Don’t hesitate to contact us for further information or to be put in contact with an ex-participant who has experience of fundraising.
