What are World Vision Community Groups?
They are groups of people across Australia who are passionate about supporting World Vision’s work through fundraising.
Groups are made up of like-minded people who come together, as volunteers, to raise funds for specific World Vision projects in a variety of fun and innovative ways.
There are Community Groups located throughout the country, with many having run for 20, 30 and even 40 years!
How do groups fundraise and how often do they meet?
Community Groups fundraise in many different ways and usually decide as a group what events they will run and how often. Some examples of successful events include market stalls, movie nights, fashion shows and luncheons.
Community Groups also hold regular meetings where members can receive updates on the projects they are supporting.
How does World Vision support Community Groups?
World Vision provides groups with regular updates on the projects they are supporting, as well as newsletters. We also have fundraising resources available and can provide advice and assistance for special events.
