Start your fundraising

I am the fundraiser

Create your own fundraising page to personalise, share and inspire others to support your mission.


I am an organiser

Create a fundraising page for my school, church, or group to manage and encourage my team.


Firstly, find out if your school or church are participating in this year’s 40 Hour Famine. If they are, speak to your Famine Organiser and they will give you a Sponsorship Book. You can scan the QR code on the front of the book to activate an online fundraising profile. 

If you are taking part as an individual, the easiest way to fundraise is to activate an online fundraising profile at and select ’40 Hour Famine 2019’. You can then personalise your page, your fundraising goal as well as email friends and family and share on social media.  

If you would rather collect the donations in cash face to face, order your Sponsorship Book here. When you get your Sponsorship Book, scan the QR on the front of the book to activate your online fundraising profile and connect your online profile to your Sponsorship Book. Don’t have a QR reader? No worries, enter the URL under the QR code on the front of your Sponsorship Book to take you to the sign up page.  

Download the World Vision NZ app from App Store or Google Play to fundraise on your phone. It only takes a few minutes and all you need is your own email address.  

Joining a team is a great way to fundraise! 

You can join a team easily when you create your fundraising page.

If you don’t already have a fundraising profile. Scan the QR code or enter the URL on the front of your Sponsorship Book and connect with your school, church or team. 
The easiest way is to set up an online fundraising page or head to the App Store or Google Play and download the World Vision NZ app. Share your fundraising link with all  your friends and family (you could even ask them to send the link on to their friends and family, or people they know would also love to support you). 

Alternatively use a 40 Hour Famine Sponsorship book which you can get from your group organiser. If you’re not part of a team, you can order a Sponsorship book here.

Fundraising with others is a great way to stay motivated and reach your goal. The simplest way to fundraise as part of a team is for you and your friends to create your own individual fundraising pages. Then you can create a team page and invite your friends to join your team. If a team already exists, you can find and join the team from your fundraising page in My World Vision or our app. Download our new app now from Google Play or Apple Store

Get started now by creating your own individual page and your team page.
From your fundraising page in My World Vision or World Vision New Zealand app (download now from Google Play or Apple Store) you can email your contacts to ask them to support you and your cause. Inspire others to help you change the world by sharing your fundraising page on social media. The more you spread the word, the more you’ll raise and the more children you’ll help to reach.
Where children are vulnerable to poverty, violence, exploitation and life-threatening circumstances, World Vision is there. That’s where the funds you raise go. Where they are most needed. 

Your fundraising dollars help provide life-saving aid in emergencies and build sustainable, thriving communities. World Vision reaches 1 new person every 10 seconds with clean water, provides millions of children with nutritious food, healthcare and education, and protects children wherever they are vulnerable, all with your support. 

Last year, 82.7 per cent of all the money World Vision New Zealand received went to our development work overseas. For a detailed breakdown please read our Annual Report.
Every fundraising page has an end date of three months from when you start so that your hard work can start transforming the lives of children around the world as soon as possible. You can edit your end date when you create your fundraising page or afterwards in My World Vision or our app (download now from Google Play or Apple Store).

Once your fundraising has reached its end date, your page will no longer accept donations. Your page will still exist, so you have a record of the difference you have made.
