Where can I acquire funding for my volunteer program to teach children in Asia?

I have been studying English for 3 years and I had some good teaching experiences and also gained certificates. However, I do need some help to fund my volunteering programs to teach children in Asia!

You can do this on your own, or you could find an organization that will help you.

www.gofundme.com is one place you could try for getting funding if you want to do this all on your own,

Good luck

Agree with earlier poster, a good way to do this is to crowd fund. You can describe the program you want to build and your goals, maybe make a video or two, including stories of some of the children you want to help. That should get the crowd funding interest started.

Have you contacted existing NGOs/charities to see if you could partner with them? That is exponentially easier than setting up your own entity and raising money for your efforts.

You could potentially create a program of your own underneath an existing organization, and take charge of raising your own funding (but allow them to run it all through their books so they handle all the reporting, tax filing, etc). They would likely need to take a percentage of all gifts secured to cover their admin costs but it would likely still be far less than you would spend setting up on your own.

In terms of donors ... the best place to begin is your natural network (friends, family, and companies where they work). You would then need to track and report all of your outcomes from your work so that you can eventually qualify for a grant funding, which might also be a good path.

Hello. Awesome that you do this kind of work. I have a question first. Do you have a nonprofit set up, or do you work with another agency?
