Fundraise for VSA

Connect with your community for VSA!

Rosie Paterson PNG bbqThank you

It’s fantastic that you're interested in fundraising for international development through volunteering. No matter how big or small, every dollar you raise goes to programmes that really work.


Fundraising can be great fun and rewarding. Here is some information to get you started.


Fundraising Ideas

Take a look at our VSA fundraising pack, it's full of great ideas for events you can host in your local community.


Set up your online Fundraising page

With your very own fundraising page, you can collect donations online – not just at your event! This means that people who can't attend your event can still donate. And it means that you can collect funds before and after the big day!

  • Visit the everydayhero site 
  • Click on start fundraising
  • Personalise your page by uploading photos and adding a bit about yourself and (if you are a recently selected volunteer) the assignment you will be going on
  • Share the link to your page on your Facebook page, on Twitter, add it to your email signature... the more people you tell, the better
  • It's safe and secure and your donors are issued with a receipt immediately


Media and publicity

The local media can help make your event a great success and we are happy to support you every step of the way just contact Sarah Barnett, our Media Officer.


How we can help you

We want to help you make your event a success. We can provide:

  • Pictures for your fundraise online page
  • Vista magazines and brochures for you to distribute at your fundraising event
  • A letter of endorsement for your fundraising activity
  • Videos and powerpoints to show at your event
  • A donation record template for donors who would like a receipt
  • Plastic bags for coin collections
