Our supporters are our most valuable asset - without them we simply couldn't function. However you choose to get involved with supporting Venture Trust: thank you.
There are loads of ways you can support Venture Trust - donate your unwanted vehicle, give your time and energy, enter a fundraising event, or simply shop online (seriously, check out our partnership with EasyFundraising!)
However, we're always open to new ideas and suggestions, so if you've got a great idea about how to use your skills and energy to support those we work with - please don't hesitate to get in touch.
They say money makes the world go round - well, it also buys walking boots for our participants, pays our staff teams to support young people, and keeps our outreach vehicles on the road to local communities. Please consider making a donation to support our work. You can also find out more about what your donation could do.
Give your time
Venture Trust isn't usually able to accept the many kind offers of volunteering on our programmes and expeditions, but we’d love your help in many other ways:
- Volunteer in our head office - if you have skills in HR, finance, fundraising or marketing and communications, and could commit to a regular volunteer placement in office hours, we'd love to hear from you.
- Organise an event - Running a marathon, shaving your head or sitting in a bath of cold baked beans? We'd love to hear about it, and can support you to raise money for Venture Trust.
- Take part in one of our events - from time to time we secure charity places in events. Check out our events page for details of upcoming events that you could get involved in.
Our current volunteer positions are advertised on our news pages, so check them out now!
Give a car
We're thrilled to have teamed up with GiveaCar, a social enterprise raising money for good causes by collecting old or unwanted vehicles. Each car donated could pay for at least ten hours of support for a young person who’s homeless, leaving care, struggling to care for their family, or at risk of drug and alcohol misuse. Your unwanted car could change their future.
To find out more, or arrange collection, call GiveaCar on 020 0011 1664, or arrange collection online.
"I’m impressed. The online application form was easy to use, all the emails were prompt, simple and clear, and the collection was carried out on time. This worked really well from a ‘user’ point of view, and I’m really chuffed. I’m pleased to have been able to recycle the vehicle, and delighted that Venture Trust will benefit."
- GiveaCar donor, May 2011
