Fund Raising Project

CVN  is an NGO that relies on funding from various resources. This funding often comes in the form of grants or sponsorship with our various partners, however, funding can also come from regular fundraising activities.

If you have prior experience with fundraising for organisations, there are always openings for volunteer work in this area. Bring your previous experience and fresh ideas – we would love to hear how you would approach fundraising for any of our projects! This can occur within Ghana locally, or a fundraising event run in your home country.
Fundraising can be done at any time of the year, but contact us first to discuss our areas of need at the time.
