Fundraising & Donations

The goodwill to volunteer in Nepal is a great first step. On this page you can find hints, tips and resources to help raise your volunteer fees or for extra money to fund a particular project

We firmly believe our volunteer fees offer exceptional value for money, so that as many people as possible can volunteer in Nepal. Below we have pulled together some basic fundraising guidelines that can be used to help raise money for your volunteer fee, or to raise extra money to fund a particular project.

Should I bring extra money or supplies from home?

Many of our volunteers bring money with them and some also bring clothes and other items. When choosing what to bring though, please remember how cheap things are in Nepal: a pair of socks is around $1, a full badminton set $5, and warm winter clothes around $15. A small amount of money can go a long way here.

To get an idea of what you can do, read about two volunteers’ donations here: Donating more than just time

Simple ideas for raising money:

Give yourself plenty of time so you can collect money and develop good ideas

Be clear on your placement so you can explain to people exactly what you are doing and why it is worthwhile

Make it easy for people to donate money online; Just Giving and Click and Pledge are both good websites

Contact EVERYONE you can think of. No matter how small the donation, it is all put to good use

Past volunteer’s ideas:

Run a Marathon or sponsored 10k: Click here to find a marathon near you

Long distance cycling trips: inspiration from Adventure Cycling

Write a column for a newspaper about your experiences

Sponsored neighborhood car washes

At a wedding or anniversary ask guests to give money instead of gifts

Shave your hair off!

Possible ideas for schools, universities and companies:

Many groups raise money at home for a particular project they will be working on in Nepal. Raising money for a new project, and then being a part of building it is both rewarding and satisfying. Many groups hold events to raise the required funds such as concerts, plays or sports tournaments, at which they tell people about VSN and the work they will be doing.

Why not try:

A sponsored school event such as a play or concert

Renting out a bar for all your friends and charging a small entrance fee to raise funds

Hosting a pub quiz with occasional questions about Nepal

5-a-side Football tournaments

‘Battle of the bands’
