It's not all about the money
Where we can help...
With skills and knowledge across the sector, the ALMT offers pro bono support and advice to partners, past and present and potential. These pro bono services include database training and implementation, funding application advice and support, fundraising expertise, skill sharing and digital and online media development.
There is a broad range of skills and experience presented in the team of staff and Trustees who have been working hard to transform the funder/recipient relationship into a real partnership with staff hours dedicated to providing support.
Building a co-operative
The Trust is creating direct contact between donors and organisations by incorporating information and web links to partner pages, offering direct partner pledges at events which transform into restricted grants, and encouraging our corporate partners to utilise our portfolio of partner organisations to fundraise.
In other words...
'As a small, volunteer led charity HVP Nepal-UK have found ALMT’s support in setting up our Salesforce online database invaluable. Silvie/ALMT provided us with advice, support and training as well as setting up the database to our specific requirements. We have already felt huge benefits in the ease we can now communicate with supporters, and now have the foundation on which to build better systems and communication strategies.'
Matt Daw - Chair, HVP Nepal-UK
"Mtaala began five years ago as a pet project for a few of us who wanted to help Alice, a determined ex-headmistress, who, restless in retirement, had set up a makeshift school out of her home in her native Uganda to provide education for a handful of needy and vulnerable children. Five years on, the school has close to 100 children, but with this growth came problems, principally, how to ensure we had, have and continue to have enough funding to deliver Alice's mission - to give these kids, and more, the best possible education. ALMT, with its great breadth of knowledge and experience, has this past year helped us clarify our objectives and refine our fundraising skills and tools, crucial if we're to continue to help Alice build the school she wants to and help those children so in-need."
