fundraise for us icon

Help raise vital funds to the transform the lives and education of thousands of disadvantaged children in a rural corner of Kenya.

Whether you are an individual looking for a good cause to support through a sponsored event, or a school seeking to support others less fortunate, or even a community group then we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Personal fundraising

You don’t have to run a marathon or climb a mountain (although we’d be delighted if you would like to!); you can also raise funds for us for free when you shop online. Maybe you could organise your own fundraising event such as a coffee morning or quiz night?

Staff fundraising

Help raise funds for us at work by choosing or nominating us as your Charity of the Month/Year, or asking your employer about setting up a Payroll Giving programme. We can work with your company whether you are a business of just a couple of staff, or thousands!

Pupil fundraising

It’s humbling when children raise money to help others less fortunate. Could your school and pupils work with us to improve the education of disadvantaged primary school children in Kenya?

Not sure what you could do to raise funds? Here are a few things that other individuals, schools and companies have done over the years…

Interested in fundraising for us?

Please get in touch if you would like to fundraise for us at home, work or school so that we can provide you with as much support as we can to make your fundraising a success. If you are doing a sponsored event or would like to collect donations from friends and family online, you can set up a personalised fundraising page with our friends at JustGiving in a few easy steps.


Frequently asked questions

We can supply you with A4 posters, leaflets and collection ‘tins’. If available we can also supply you with copies of our most recent Annual Report. If you have a major fundraising event planned we can also lend you our roller banners to help brand your event.

We are a very small team and other than in exceptional circumstances we are afraid that no representative from the charity will be able to attend your event in person.

If you have collected cash then please pay us the funds as an online donation, by cheque payable to ‘African Promise’ to the address at the bottom of this page or by direct bank transfer to our bank account*. We kindly request that you do not send us the cash! If you donate the funds online please do not mark the donation as eligible for Gift Aid and please email us to let us know you have done this so we can identify the source of the funds.

We are currently a member charity of JustGiving and, solely to meet the conditions of us being awarded a place in the 2016 London Marathon, VirginMoneyGiving (VMG). However we strongly recommend setting up your fundraising page with JustGiving. Although they charge us a membership fee of £18 per month and a 5% fee on all donations made to fundraising pages (while VMG and some other providers are free for charities to use and charge a lower fee on donations) we believe that the service and product that JustGiving provides to both us and you (as fundraisers and donors) is vastly superior and offers much better value for money. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
