Fondacio is an international lay movement working for a more humane and harmonious world.
It is active in over 20 countries and 4 continents. Based on Gospel values and the teaching of the Catholic Church, Fondacio is recognised by the Vatican as an ‘International Lay Association of the Faithful’, at the service of the poor, young people, families, the elderly and leaders. Fondacio places volunteers, of all ages and faiths, in projects in Africa, Asia and South America. Currently in the UK, our work focuses on couples and a mission to Asia for young people and those marginalised by poverty. We also gather regularly in London for prayer and sharing, and welcome all in a spirit of friendship.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
