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.

Guests at the annual ALMT Burns Night gala dinner bid on limited-edition balls, hand stitched at Alive & Kicking’s operation in Nairobi, Kenya. The production of these balls generates fairly paid and sustainable employment for 70 people in Kenya. The elephant balls were produced to raise awareness about elephant poaching.
