Why not do something fun, unique, and challenging to raise funds for a Pioneers missionary or project? It’s really easy to get started. Just have a browse below to find everything everything you need to become a Pioneers Community Fundraiser.
There’s almost no end to the activities you can do to raise money!

Other Ways To Volunteer:
Volunteers are at the heart of most charities, and Pioneers is no exception. We are always looking for people who are willing to volunteer their time and expertise to help us get more people to the mission field. Think you have nothing to offer? We beg to differ! If you’d like to help out – even if you’re not sure how – get in touch and let us know.
We were tracking her progress on the NYC Marathon app so we knew where she was, but she had no way of knowing where we were, or when (or if!) she would see us again. When she finally rounded a corner into view, we started shouting her name and waving our arms with glee. She ran to the side, but this time there were tears in her eyes and she dared not stop. “I just need it to be over,” she shouted as she passed us with heavy feet...
Jill has spent a lifetime raising funds for her daughter and other causes close to her heart... "I go to a ‘Senior’ Ladies’ Knitting Group each year with an up-to-date PowerPoint of the family and their work and they ask lots of questions and they too give generously. People sort of ‘take ownership’ of them. The money is always welcome, but the interest and prayers are by far the most important."
You know, I’m a very average person who’s just had sufficient so I can support someone else doing a job that I can’t do – just like supporting my church minister – it just seems natural! I remember reading a book where the author asked, “Why should I only give 10% to God?” It’s all His anyway. Far better that I keep a little and He gets the rest.
