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.

During the Covid-19 lockdown in the UK, many families were facing additional hardship as income strands had disappeared. Eastside Young Leaders Association (EYLA) works with 100 families who benefited from some additional food support over Christmas.

 

The project provided each family with a £30 supermarket voucher prior to Christmas. Families could then decide whether they used it over Christmas or put it towards costs in the New Year.
