In order to be able to assist those in need in times of distress, as well as to support those who need help towards medical or educational costs, we do need to raise money from our fellow Zoroastrians, Friends and Supporters.
Thanks to fundraising efforts, bequests and donations, WZO has been able to build up a range of funds to support Zoroastrians in a variety of ways.
We hope you will consider supporting us through a donation, however big or small. Every donation counts and we thank you in advance for any assistance you are able to provide.
You can donate to WZO either by bank transfer to the World Zoroastrian Organisation in the UK in GBP (pounds sterling) using the following bank details:
Account Number: 13533479
Sort Code: 60-50-01
By donating by bank transfer in the UK, WZO pays no processing fee and more of your donation can be used towards our work. Please include which fund you wish the donation to be used for e.g."Donation to General Fund".
We will also contact you after you have donated if we do not have information about your Gift Aid status in the UK.
Alternatively you can donate via PayPal using the buttons below using a credit or debit card, from anywhere in the world!
Donations to this general fund are much appreciated as it allows the flexibility necessary to enable WZO to channel its resources in response to current requirements. Money from this fund can be sent anywhere in the world. It is, therefore, our preferred option for receiving contributions.
You can donate to WZO either by bank transfer to our UK bank account details above (which means WZO pays no processing fees) or by Paypal.
Special Appeals Fund
From time to time a particular need arises, which might be entirely focussed on our own Zoroastrian community.
Occasionally, however, WZO will launch an appeal in the face of a particular event or human tragedy that reaches beyond our own people.
WZO’s members and supporters have been urging it to have a local community centre where they, their spouses including non-Zoroastrian spouses, and their children will be welcomed to attend religious events, seminars, Gathic classes and social events. Any funds received will be used to purchase, refurbish and maintain the centre.
Women and Children’s Fund
This fund was set up by our late Chairman, Dr (Mrs) Shirinbanoo Kutar, to provide a much needed holiday for Zoroastrian Widows and their young children in India.
Noshirwan F Cowasjee Medical Benevolent Fund
WZO utilises this fund to assist our fellow Zoroastrians to meet the high costs of medical treatment anywhere in the world.
Gujarat Farmers Fund
WZO utilises this fund to help our rural co-religionists in India to improve their living standards through improved housing, self-employment and basic education etc.
See the latest video, 'Promise of a New Day', on the work of the World Zoroastrian Organisation Trusts' in Gujarat.
WZO is building a corpus for this fund. It is in place to assist Zoroastrian students where personal financial limitations are a barrier to achieving their academic potential and ultimate goals. Donations to this fund are therefore helping to build a future generation of well qualified Zoroastrians.
