Volunteer Fundraising

Project Trust’s staff and Returned Volunteer Mentors have supported over 8000 young people to achieve their fundraising target over the past fifty years.

Fundraising to support your volunteering placement is an important part of your Project Trust experience and an opportunity to learn and develop skills for life. 

Volunteer fundraising donations are an essential part of our charitable income and are what enables us to support your volunteering experience

  • What’s Included
    • Return flights from London
    • Comprehensive medical insurance
    • Accommodation and a living allowance
    • Selection, Training and Debriefing courses
    • Ongoing support before, during and after your placement
  • Fundraising Support

    Project Trust prides itself on having a dedicated Fundraising Support Team, supporting you to become a confident fundraiser. 

    During the Selection Course you will discover how to fundraise strategically, where to begin and how to make the most of support available.

    Once you have been offered a place, you will be assigned a Volunteer Fundraising Support Officer who will provide tailored ideas, advice and support.  You will also receive fundraising newsletters highlighting key dates and further opportunities.

  • Mentoring Programme

    You will be matched with a Project Trust Returned Volunteer Fundraising Mentor, a young person who has recently returned from their international volunteering placement after successfully fundraising. Your Mentor will be available to listen, advise, encourage and share inspiration.

  • Fundraising Targets

    The current fundraising target for a 12-month international placement is £6,950. For the shorter programme, the current target is £6,250

  • Access Fund

    We are committed to ensuring that our volunteering opportunities are accessible to young people of all backgrounds. An Access Fund bursary is available to those who fit the criteria for financial support. Please contact us for further information.

Project Trust Volunteers have made an impact throughout the communities where they serve. They have been able to bring opportunities to students who might never have had them and have changed lives. We are thankful for their commitment to Honduras and to the children whom they serve.
