VIA continues to provide transformative experiences to our fellows and participants, and ongoing support to our partner organizations. As always, your support is vital to providing these meaningful international experiences to more people.

Ways to give:

Annual Friends of VIA Campaign

Support the Global Community Fellowship (formerly long-term volunteer or service fellow program). We have taken the bold step of eliminating the participant fee. It is a stretch goal, and we need your help now more than ever. Your donations make the program more accessible, especially to those with large student loans and limited resources. Make giving easy – set up a recurring monthly or annual donation!

Dwight Clark Scholarship Fund

The Dwight Clark Scholarship fund was established in honor of VIA founder Dwight Clark at VIA’s 50th anniversary in 2013. The fund is helping us remove the participant fee for the Global Community Fellowship and to offer financial aid for short-term programs in Silicon Valley. We continue to welcome donations.

How to Donate

Credit Card

We use a non-profit service to process our credit card transactions called Classy. Using a 3rd party helps us keep our costs low and allows us to spend more time and money on our programs! Credit card donations can be made securely through our Classy donation page. Click here to access the form and make your online donation.

Corporate Matching

Many companies have programs through which they will “match” the charitable contributions made by their employees. First, you can check to see if your company offers matching through the Double the Donation database:


If not listed in the database, you can still check with your company’s Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching. (If they do not, consider asking your company to start a program.) If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form. Mail the form with your donation (or with your name, date, and amount of your donation if you donated online) to:

VIA (Volunteers in Asia)
P.O. Box 1314
