A small team with big ideas


What do we do?

The ALMT makes targeted grants to organisations working towards its shared mission to mitigate the suffering of children Worldwide. The team build partnerships with grant recipients offering advice and support, digital and media coverage and fundraising assistance. Potential partners must display stringent report writing, measurable results and have exceptional monitoring and evaluation processes in place.


The Trust accepts solicited requests for funding sourced through the ALMT's ever growing web of friends, partners and contacts.



How do we do it?

Funding decisions are made by an experienced board of professionals representing skills from accountancy, corporate social responsibility, finance and investments and the Third Sector.

The ALMT Board benefits from a partner's committee who dedicate up to 5 days per month to meet with applicants, review applications and conduct the right amount of due diligence before proposals are recommended for funding.

The Trust also actively invites donors to co-fund on projects that fit their interests. When a partner, current, new or past, has been identified as a candidate for funding, the ALMT opens up the opportunity for supporters to make a direct donation to fund up to half of the partnership, thus enabling confidence, trust and security in knowing where every penny has gone.



Longevity and support

With skills and knowledge across the sector the ALMT offers pro bono support and advice to partners, both past and present. These pro bono services include database training and implementation, funding application advice and support, fundraising expertise, skill sharing and digital and online media development.
