What is 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. 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.

Alive & Kicking have factories in Africa that make footballs, that make jobs, that feed families, that create a real and sustainable existence for thousands. A third of all children who receive Alive & Kicking sports balls have never played with a real ball before and have had to make their own out of rubbish, plastic bags and string.


One ball costs £15 and guests at the annual ALMT Burns Night gala dinner donated the cost of 10 balls each, providing up to 450 children with play equipment that will be used for years.
