Thousands of Volunteers before you have reached their fundraising goals and our Fundraising Support team, mentors, and toolkits are all available to support and guide you to achieve the same.
Although not a requirement, you might already have some experience of fundraising. Whether you do or don’t, we will guide you through the steps so you can develop your own Fundraising Strategy, uniquely tailored to your strengths and opportunities. This is supplemented by a comprehensive fundraising advice pack, with our dedicated Fundraising Support team always on hand by email or the phone to help you progress through your fundraising journey.
Additionally, every Fundraising Volunteer has access to a Project Trust Returned Volunteer mentor. Having completed the challenge of fundraising themselves, they are keen to give any advice, food for thought, confidence, or motivation you find you might need.

At the start, raising the funds for a Project Trust Gap Year may seem to be more challenging than the year itself, but it needs many of the same skills and attitudes – determination, initiative, optimism, resilience, curiosity and perseverance.
By fundraising to Volunteer overseas, young people we work with learn, develop, and enhance these skills that they will use overseas and beyond, in the next stages of life. This includes planning and organisational skills, the ability to complete detailed application forms and write formal letters, maintain accurate record-keeping, and build confidence while practising presenting to different groups of people.
Many parents, guardians and young people themselves are amazed at what Project Trust Volunteers achieve – even before they embark on their placement!
We offer our volunteers all the necessary support and resources required for them to strive at their project. Project Trust will make all necessary arrangements for your travel to and from your placement from the UK (usually London). We additionally provide our Volunteers with comprehensive medical insurance to ensure you are in safe hands while overseas.
You will be invited to our selection, training & debriefing courses with our experienced staff, each with the primary focus of empowering to strive and make a positive impact.
We offer support to our volunteers the whole way through their volunteer journey giving you the support to succeed. From our staff based on Coll to our overseas partnerships and representatives were all here to support you. Accommodation will be provided for all volunteers along with catered meals or the provisions, along with a living allowance to cover standard living costs.
