Can I Still Get Involved and Run Fundraisers if I'm Under 18? Yes, Veterans for Wildlife welcomes all fundraisers no matter what their age! If you are under 18 or have people involved in the organisation that are, please make sure they have permission from their parent or guardian, and are supervised by a responsible adult. In order for any person under 18 to run a fundraiser their parent or guardian would have to register it with Veterans for Wildlife by contacting us directly.
