Many people ask “Why does Soul Survivor need to fundraise?” And it’s a good question! Have a read on to find out why we need your support to be able to do what we do...
why we do what we do...
We are a charity which means we don't make any money. We exist because we're passionate about young people meeting with Jesus and learning more about following him in their everyday lives.
Our main summer events are aimed at teenagers which mean most of them are studying rather than working and they have very little spare cash. We’d hate for anyone who wants to come to our events to be excluded on the basis of not having enough money so we try and keep the costs of our conferences as low as possible.
it's not just about the summer...
On top of the summer conferences we run a number of events throughout the year such as equipping days and SoulNet events for youth leaders, and some of these don't cover their own costs (we keep the admission low so that they are open to more young people). We work with a number of international Soul Survivor centres around the world, invest in raising up new leaders, and serve Christians in areas of the world where they are persectued for their faith. We also invest in areas like developing resources such as mini-magazines and video teaching that we make available for free in order to encourage and equip people in their faith.
Soul Action is about putting God's heart for social justice into action. We share the day to day running costs of Soul Action (staff, computers, electricity etc) with Tearfund so that money given to Soul Action can go directly towards projects working with those in poverty.
there is lots to do...
All in all, there’s lots to do! Our passion is to reach as many young people and youth leaders as possible so we don’t want to increase our booking fees. That means there is a shortfall between what we need to spend and what we have coming in, so we rely on friends like you who share our vision and passion to help us cover our costs. It would be really amazing if you could stand with us and support us by giving in whatever way you can. You can find out about all the ways you can give by clicking on the links. The thing that would help us most would be if you were able to give a regular donation - no matter how small - as this helps us to plan our activities knowing what support we have.
