Currently, the fundraising target to take part in an international development project is around £800 for each individual. Volunteers must reach this target before they go away.
But fear not - there is a committee member dedicated to helping you fundraise and every volunteer last year reached above this with one volunteer managing to fundraise a phenomenal £2000!
Where does the money go?
Deposits and Admin Costs
As you can imagine, funding a project like this is a big responsibility. To ensure we are able to meet the project costs prior to fundraising we ask volunteers to provide a £295 deposit. This is collected in two instalments throughout the year. Your deposit will be fully refunded providing you reach the fundraising target.
We feel it is important that those donating money to BVDA can rest assured it goes directly to the cost of the project. As a result, we ask all volunteers to contribute a £30 admin fee to the charity. This covers training materials, publicity and the general day-to-day running of BVDA.
