Trust Fundraising

Trust Fundraising

You are doing a wonderful job and the trustees were very impressed with you.’ 

A significant proportion of our voluntary income comes from Grant Making Trusts and Foundations. We would like to thank all those who fund us now and have funded us in the past.

Giving Africa is keen to build on existing and new partnerships with organisations that share our vision.  Your Trust can support our important work in Burkina Faso to enable more children to access education and bring themselves and their families out of the cycle of poverty.  You will be kept informed and updated on how your contribution has been spent, and about the impact it is having on the lives of the children we exist to support.

If you are a Trustee, or have links with a Trust or Foundation for which you feel Giving Africa is an appropriate beneficiary, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact caroline@givingafrica.org.uk

 This is how your grant could support our work:

  • £500 will provide much needed books and stationary
  • £3,000 will furnish a library to provide an essential learning environment
  • £10,000 will enable 50 students to train in woodless construction and establish their own businesses
  • £30,000 will fund our food programme, providing 1000 students with a decent meal each day for a year

Feedback from one of our Trust funders:

‘As trustees spending out relatively small amounts of money we try to ensure that we get the best value we can for each pound we spend. If we lived in an ideal world and one could be fairy godmother for a baby born into that world, what would one wish for it? Stability, security, food, water, education, employment, dignity, a safe environment… the list goes on…

Your charity stood out for being relatively small so our funds make a larger amount of difference, for utilising all the funds you have available, for hitting so many buttons across the board from food to the environment and particularly those on our own objectives such as education and empowerment, for involving the people themselves in their own future and for setting up a control in order to measure what difference is being made, and for your work in one of the most marginalised populations in the world.’
