Resources for Volunteering Abroad Funding
We recommend you first look for funding through your own university as they sometimes provide one-off grants for this purpose. However, you may also be able to get funding through one of these resources:
- Go Overseas – Yearly one-off $500 grant available to volunteer with a partner organisation
- Omprakash – Quartely one-off grants available to volunteer with a partner organisation
- Jack Petchey Foundation – Funding to those looking to help disadvantaged young people, including through volunteering abroad. (£300 limit per person)
- Volunteer Forever – Allows users to ‘crowdsource’ from other users, friends & family
- Volunteer Forever Potential Funding List – Comprehensive list of potential sources of funding
