Trust and Foundation Co-Funding
Co-funding with the ALMT allows individuals, other Trusts and Foundations, and Companies to contribute funds directly to individual, vetted and approved, project partnerships. This way of giving allows the Co-Funder full access to project applications, budgets, project visits, and reports, from a wide portfolio of amazing small organisations. With fifteen years of experience awarding grants and working in partnership with children’s organisations around the world, the ALMT is best placed to support you in your philanthropy.

Working together makes us stronger, that’s why we team up with other Trusts and Foundations to find, fund and enhance our grant making. There are a number of reasons Co-Funding works in partnership with other grant making bodies;
- For smaller Trusts and for family giving, partnering with the ALMT provides the accountability and know-how needed when grant making which can be time consuming and involves many hours research and specialist skills. With a professional team in place, the ALMT takes care of all the due diligence, ongoing monitoring, memorandums of understanding, and reporting procedure, giving peace of mind and assurance when funding small children’s charities. When Co-Funding in this way, the grant is facilitated through the ALMT.
- For larger Trusts and Foundations, the ALMT actively partner on finding and funding projects, building a mutually beneficial relationship for all parties. Other grant making bodies can bring funding applications to the ALMT, and vice versa, to Co-Fund in partnership. This bolsters the offering greatly, and provides the charity partner with not one, but two grant making partners, to call upon for support or to use as evidence of good practice when applying to other grant making organisations. When Co-Funding in this way, the grant is facilitated through the ALMT. We are proud to partner with the Mac Bevan Charitable Trust and the Rosemarie Nathanson Charitable Trust.
- Thirdly, as the ALMT grant making guidelines state, we will only fund charities with a registered UK charity number. There are, however, some incredible international charities working in countries and regions where help and support are vital. In these cases, the ALMT can partner with another Trust or Foundation, which has expertise in making international grants, representation on the ground, and all the procedures in place to confidently make international payments overseas, including thorough monitoring and evaluation of the spending, project reports and social impact. In these cases, the ALMT can support groundbreaking projects around the World. When Co-Funding in this way, the grant is facilitated by the partner Trust. We are proud to partner with the Egmont Trust which enables the ALMT to support projects in line with our mission, but which would otherwise be outside of the normal grant making guidelines.
The ALMT believe strongly in partnerships worth sharing and we welcome the opportunity to meet and develop Co-Funding relationships with more Trusts and Foundations, family Trusts and community groups.
