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 first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and the UKs first lockdown, ALMT partners across the globe continued to support those most in need. Although many organisations had to halt activities temporarily, many others continued to deliver amazing outcomes in very challenging circumstances. The ALMT were aware that the effects of Covid-19 would continue to be felt for a long time to come and were keen to provide partners with practical support. In response to the emerging situation the ALMT launched an initiative to provide emergency unrestricted grants up to £5000 for existing partners and Alive and Kicking were awarded one such grant.
