There are a number of ways that you can give to World Vision. Check out our various opportunities below. If you require assistance, please phone 0800 800 776.
Sponsor a child
Child Sponsorship, through community development, achieves real and long-lasting change for children, families and communities living in extreme poverty.
Sponsoring a child gives you personal contact with a child and their family within a community. You will receive annual updates on your child and their community and you can also choose to correspond with your sponsor child. Money does not go directly to sponsored children, because World Vision has found the best way to help a child is to help the whole community through our long-term community development programmes. We know through decades of experience that these programmes work, and children's lives are changed through transforming their communities.
Smiles gift catalogue
A smile is the first thing you look for when you give a gift - so why not spread it further? With a gift from our Smiles catalogue, you'll stretch that smile from someone you love to someone far away.
You can spend as little as $6 or as much as $89,950. Whatever the amount, you'll be contributing to the lives of children, families and communities in need.
And that's gotta make you smile, too.
Making an online donation is a great way to help those in need without making a monthly commitment. Just fill in your details and select one or more of the causes you'd like to donate to, and click submit. In addition to online donations, World Vision offers other ways to make a donation.
All World Vision payment forms are secured by a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.
Please note, all donations of $5 and over are eligible for a tax credit, and your donation will be included in your annual tax certificate sent in April each year. Any questions? Please contact us, email our team or call us on 0800 800 776.
Children in Crisis
Children in Crisis (CIC) is a pledge programme unique to World Vision. Within the Children inCrisis programme you are able to choose to support a key crisis area of your interest. Your options are:
Children at risk: helps children escape dangerous, abusive and exploitative situations, such as being sold into prostitution or forced into child labour
Education and advocacy: helps children access basic quality education so they can escape poverty and reach their full potential.
Emergency and disaster mitigation: provides essential items such as food, clean water and shelter to children affected by conflict or natural disasters (e.g. famine, war, earthquakes, floods)
Health and disabilities: increases children's access to safe water, proper sanitation and medical treatment, and advocates for the rights of children with disabilities
HIV and AIDS: supports children orphaned because of AIDS, caregivers looking after the sick, and educates the community, especially youth, on how to avoid HIV infection
It's easy to support Children in Crisis, simply call World Vision on 0800 800 776
Donate your tax credits
If you do not claim a credit the money remains with the government. However, if you do claim your rebate, you can make your initial donation work again by donating it back to World Vision. We have a growing number of people who do this each year, and on behalf of World Vision, we thank you for your support.
Many of the world's poor have the entrepreneurial spirit. They work hard and have clever ideas. They are not lazy. They just have not been given a chance to live their dreams.
By offering basic business training and small loans we aim to build people's capacity to solve their own problems and support themselves and their families. This is about nurturing tiny enterprises and creating gainful work and improving income security. By providing a small amount of loan capital and business expertise VisionFund realises the full potential of these entrepreneurs and encourages others to be entrepreneurial. It unleashes the entrepreneurial spirit in the poor themselves.
Thousands of Kiwis are lending a hand to our Pacific Partners in Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea to help improve health, education, and agricultural and economic development for children and their families. Thank you for your generous support!

Wills and bequests
As well as donating money during their lifetime, many people choose to acknowledge a favourite charity in their will, by leaving a bequest. A bequest is a special gift of cash or assets that you leave in your will to a person or organisation. After taking care of your loved ones in your will, you might like to also leave a gift to World Vision.
World Food Programme
World Vision works with the UN World
Food Programme to provide
life-saving food aid where needed most. By working together in countries like North and South Sudan, Uganda and Laos, we can make a bigger impact to save more lives and fight child malnutrition.
Our partnership also means your donation will also go further, with every $1 you give providing $6 worth of food aid.
