40 Hour Challenge FAQs

World Vision New Zealand is committed to ensuring the highest proportion of its funds gets to those in need and we work to keep the cost of administration and marketing to a minimum. In 2022, 84.4% of the money received by World Vision has gone to fund our development work overseas. If you want a breakdown of where World Vision New Zealand’s money goes, read our Annual Report.

We are fortunate to get generous advertising rates from television, radio, print, billboard and online media which helps our marketing budget immensely. Most of our administration and marketing costs go towards enabling more financial support so that we can reach even more people in need.
Easy! You can order a Sponsorship book here, and we will have the books sent out to you in 5-7 working days (please allow a couple extra days for rural deliveries). Any issues, please contact us on 0800 40 HOUR (0800 40 4687).
