Frequently asked questions

It has been a challenging year and 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 browse our selection of gifts online and choose the print your own or e-card options as printed catalogues and gift cards are no longer available.
It has been a challenging year and 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 or e-card options as printed gift cards are no longer available.

You can choose from a range of delivery options:

Send as an email: Need to send a gift immediately? Deliver an eGift straight to the inbox of family and friends. Simply type your message and the recipient's email address. They’ll receive a personalised email about their World Vision gift from you and the lasting impact it can have.

Print your own card: Short on time? Why not print your gift card and deliver it at a time that suits you? We’ll email you a link, so you can immediately download an A4 printable PDF that folds into a card (you’ll need Adobe Reader). 

No sent gift: If you’ve chosen not to receive a digital card, we’ll still email you a receipt for your generous donation. 

All gifts and donations are tax deductible and will be listed on your tax statement at the end of financial year. 
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 gifts, 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.

Every World Vision gift represents a real item from our work around the world, and your gift will help transform the lives of children and families in need.

Funds from your gift purchases are pooled to support work in their specific category, such as health, water, livelihoods (animals and agriculture), education, emergencies, empowering women or Indigenous empowerment, to help deliver lasting impact.

If we receive contributions in excess of the needs in a particular category, we will use it in other categories represented by items in the catalogue (excluding Australia First Nations). 

Every World Vision gift represents a real item from our work around the world, and your gift will help transform the lives of children and families in need.

For example, when you buy a goat, fish farm or fast-growing seeds, you're donating to our livelihoods work where these items are used to help families grow more food and increase their incomes.

Funds from your gift purchases are pooled to support work in their specific category, such as livelihoods, health, or water and sanitation. That way, we can make sure they have the most impact and are used where they’re needed most.   

 Unfortunately, once an eGift is sent, we can’t send it to a different email address.  But we can provide you with a link so you can print your gift card instead. Simply get in touch with us on 13 32 40 or service@worldvision.com.au.

Yes, you can. But if you buy multiple eGifts, each one will be sent in a separate email. It’s not possible to send more than one gift in a single email. 

After you’ve chosen your eGifts, you’ll be able to add your message and the recipient’s email address for each individual gift.

High Impact gifts are designed to help create bigger and lasting change for communities in need.  

Funds from your High Impact gift purchases are pooled to support work in their specific category, such as livelihoods, health, or water and sanitation, and delivered to areas where we are working – enabling us to use our existing programs to deliver greater impact for those who need it most.  

High Impact gifts help with large-scale change like supplying clean water to 24 communities, giving shelter to 6,240 people in crisis, or constructing classrooms for children in crisis. Now that’s lasting impact.

Although we are no longer offering printed gift cards online, we want to be good stewards and utilise our remaining stock at our retail stands, subject to availability. View our current retail locations here.
