Fundraise for VSO

In light of the unprecedented situation around COVID-19, VSO will not support anyone fundraising for VSO in any way that can put themselves or others at risk. This includes anything that involves gatherings of people in person. We will support any virtual fundraising activities that are organised and will continue to closely monitor the ongoing situation.
 
If you would like any support or have any questions, please contact us on events@vsoint.org. Thank you for your ongoing support and we will keep you updated on any changes to our fundraising support activities here.
 

We believe fundraising should be fun. You'll have a great time organising your fundraising for VSO and bring people together to end poverty.

You don't have to jump through fire or swim the Atlantic to be a great fundraiser. All you have to do is something, and soon people will be queuing up to support you. So let's get started!
