How does WER raise its funds?
A large proportion of WER’s funds comes from individual donors who respond to our appeals. WER uses direct mail to educate the public about the plight of disadvantaged and vulnerable children across the world and to raise the funds required for us to take positive steps towards improving the lives of these children within their communities. Many WER supporters also choose to donate online or by speaking to a member of the WER team on the phone.
Regular giving from supporters is important to WER as this helps to ensure that the charity has a consistent and predictable income. This enables us to plan and budget effectively for the future and therefore be more efficient in the work that we do. To find out more about the benefits of regular giving to WER, click here.
Some WER supporters choose to remember the work of WER in their Will and leave a legacy to WER. This is a wonderful way of helping to ensure that our life-saving work can continue to benefit children in the future. Those leaving a legacy to WER can be confident that WER will use their special gift to bring lasting and positive change to children in desperate need of our help.

WER also receives occasional grants from other trusts and agencies but does not receive any government funding.
