How your donations are put to work

Where the funds go

83.8 percent of total funds received go to field programs and advocacy work that benefits children and their families in Australia and internationally.

Teaming up with World Vision means you change lives

For over 50 years the donations of generous Australians have made a real difference for vulnerable people living in vulnerable situations across the world and here at home. From emergency relief in times of crisis, to community-led programs and advocacy initiatives, millions of people have been assisted towards building a self-supporting future full of opportunity. Through evidence-based development programs and best practices learned from decades of work and regular giving by sponsors, the lives of children, their families and communities have been transformed.  

Excess funds

Should we receive contributions in excess of the needs in a particular category, we will use the excess in other areas of our work.

Your generosity will support a range of programs to help children live life to the fullest. 

We understand that your circumstances may change, and that’s why we have flexible options to help you continue your support in a way that suits you. Simply get in touch with us on 13 32 40 if you’d like to discuss your options or stop your monthly donation.
