World Vision Community Groups
Since the 1970s, World Vision Community Groups have seen like-minded individuals coming together and raising funds for specific World Vision projects.
For nearly 40 years, right across Australia, World Vision Community Groups have achieved some fantastic things.
And groups have kept going because of the fun – and rewards – being part of a World Vision Community Group brings.
About the fundraising
Community Groups raise funds for specific World Vision projects through an array of activities: child sponsorship and trivia nights, dinner dances and auctions. By coming together, individuals maximise what they can do to help people in developing communities, and encourage others to take notice of the suffering in the world around us.
Last year, Groups raised nearly $500,000 through fundraising for special projects and child sponsorship.
How Community Groups meet
Community Groups may take on a variety of forms and meet together and fundraise in different ways, including:
- Informal home-based groups with 5-20 members who meet regularly once a month.
- Formal larger groups which meet once a month in a church or community hall.
Members receive updates on the projects they donate to enabling them to see the ongoing results of their contribution.
Support from World Vision
World Vision provides Groups with regular updates on our projects – but we also have activity and fundraising resources available too - banners, badges, information about fundraising and brochures. We can arrange volunteer training, and invitations to special events.
