The Why...

The ALMT was founded to create a lasting legacy for Angus Lawson who, despite no longer being with us, continues to impact children’s lives around the world. The Trust accepts solicited requests for funding sourced through The ALMT’s ever growing web of friends, partners and contacts.

The What...

The ALMT has over 15 years’ experience of funding small charities which are working towards the shared mission of improving the quality of life for the world’s most marginalised children and young people.  Historically The ALMT has worked closely with grant recipients offering advice and support alongside funding for innovative and creative solutions to proven problems.

The How...

The ALMT conducts stringent due diligence and research into every organisation and project proposal before deciding whether to award a grant or not. If the ALMT Board of Trustees decide to fund a project, it becomes available to co-fund. The ALMT works closely with its donors giving them the opportunity to know exactly where and who their money has been directed to.

The ALMT and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals:

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations provide a useful framework when thinking about how to improve and sustain global development.  Each goal has a series of targets and indicators enabling the sector to measure and track progress.  For many years the ALMT has funded a diverse range of projects worldwide aiming to improve the quality of life for children and young people. Click on the SDG below to view all ALMT funded projects contributing towards each specific SDG.
