Building a more peaceful world and creating spaces for intercultural dialogue: you can make this happen with your contribution!

Every amount is valuable and we truly appreciate it.

Regular donation

Donate a regular amount each month, and accompany us in the journey towards a world of peace, social justice and sustainable development, where all people live together with mutual respect and without recourse to any form of violence to solve conflict.

With your regular donation, you will support volunteers and peace projects around the world and allow us to better plan our activities.

During my volunteering experience I was empowered to take responsibility for my feelings and not feel responsible for the feelings of others. […] I couldn’t think of a greater gift than to have discovered the deep sense of peace I can feel by connecting with my-self in this way. The thought that my inner healing is simultaneously contributing to healing of the world fills me with joy and gratitude.

Donate what you can, when you can. Each and every donation is really important to us!

With your decision to support us, you are contributing to a more peaceful, sustainable and inclusive world. Thank you!

It was amazing. I learned a lot. In this one week I learned more about climate change, the things we can do to stop it, and the future, than I had in years. And I learned a lot about myself too, I realized that I have to change a little bit of myself and my lifestyle.

Give a gift in celebration

What better way to celebrate a birthday, a wedding, an anniversary or another special occasion by making others part of your happy moment?

You can share your joy by organising a gift in celebration to SCI or a specific cause. By giving in celebration you will make a special day even more meaningful!

Give a gift in memory

SCI wouldn’t be where it is without the wonderful people that have dedicated their time and passion to peace through volunteering and for us it is very special to honour their lives and service.

Giving a gift in memory is a beautiful way to celebrate and honour a person’s life while supporting a cause that was important to them.

Donate to our thematic funds

Gaia MicroGrants Programme

We want to bring the SCI motto “Deeds not words” to climate change and sustainability!

Therefore, through this fund, we support SCI branches and local groups of volunteers to implement activities focusing on sustainable living and climate justice.

Providing support to local communities dealing with climate change is particularly urgent in the Global South; that is why a big part of the funding is reserved to projects in this region.

The fund, initially supported by Terra 21 Foundation, has been running for five consecutive years and has supported over 80 projects aimed at networking and capacity building within SCI. It focuses on practical support that SCI branches provide to local communities, mainly through workcamps and training of local volunteers.Passionate about sustainable living and climate justice? Donate to the fund by choosing “Gaia MicroGrants” in the drop-down menu!

You can also choose to donate to the fund in order to compensate your carbon emissions due to travelling. Calculate your carbon emission offset amount and donate the amount to Gaia MicroGrant.

Refugee Fund

For many years, SCI branches have been active worldwide on an increasing number of projects dedicated to work with refugees and forced migrants who were displaced within or outside their Country.

Considering the positive effects of such efforts and their coherence with SCI’s mission and history, in 2015 we started providing easily accessible funds to groups and branches planning projects and actions with and for refugees, lowering barriers to connect with locals and promoting mutual understanding. Since then, more than 20 projects have been successfully implemented.

The fund was initially created using SCI’s own resources but now we need your support to keep it going: each contribution counts!Do you believe, like us, that we should support refugees in empowering themselves? Donate to the fund by choosing ‘Refugee Fund’ in the drop-down menu!
