Frequently asked questions about World Vision gifts

The eGift you buy represents an item from our program areas around the world such as health, education, food and nutrition, water and sanitation, and building family incomes.

Funds from your gift purchases are pooled together to support a specific category and will be used to transform the lives of children as well as their families. The item on the gift you buy may be the one that is actually delivered, but at the end of the day the gifts we deliver will be based on need.

For example, if a community already has enough cows, we will help them tackle poverty in other life-changing ways. In this way, your donation will deliver the greatest impact, to the children who need it most.

Every gift  you buy supports a specific area of work we engage in such as providing food, clean water, education or fighting climate change. You choose the gift you want, and we will make sure your support goes to the communities who need it most.
Every World Vision gift you buy represents a real item from our work around the world. Funds from your gift purchases are pooled to support work in a specific category such as health, water, emergencies, empowering women or building family incomes. If we receive contributions in excess of the needs in a particular category, we will use it in other categories in the catalogue where it is most needed.
Unfortunately, we are unable to send gifts to individual sponsored children or communities, but please be assured these gifts will help change lives for people experiencing poverty around the world. When you choose World Vision gift, you’ll help many families and communities – including those outside the reach of child and community sponsorship. This means your support can go even further.
All gifts and donations are tax deductible for the purchaser and will be listed on your tax statement at the end of financial year.
Like many organisations we’re adapting our strategy and becoming more digitally focused to maximise our funds for our development work. We invite you to choose the print your own card options as printed gift cards are no longer available.

World Vision gifts represent a donation to World Vision Australia and we do not offer refunds if you change your mind.
