How to fundraise

You, your family and friends have the power to change lives.

Fundraise with us

Every year thousands of you make it possible to save the lives of children.

The pennies and pounds you raise can fund water, schools, food. They fund hope. Each penny and pound goes to make sure children in some of the world’s toughest places are protected. 

Want to fundraise?

We’ll support you every step of the way to make sure your fundraising activities go to plan.

You can read our top fundraising tips or download a fundraising pack full of charity fundraising ideas. 

Then set up a page on a fundraising platform like JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving, so as many people as possible can donate to support your fundraiser with the click of a button. Make the page personal by using a photo of you, telling people why you’re doing it and why the cause matters to you. 

If you need help on how to fundraise or want to talk it over, send a message, email fundraising@worldvision.org.uk or speak to Charlotte Tipping on 01908 24 44 17.

Global 6K for Water

Every year, hundreds of you come together to run, skate or even paddle 6k - the same distance that many of the world’s poorest children have to walk to get water.

2020 was no different, with thousands raised for boreholes, wells, pipelines, latrines and washing points, as we connected people across the UK virtually. Find out more about Global 6K.
