Our Funders

In 2015 our funders were mainly local well-wishers and family members. Our support base has grown to embrace individuals, community groups and organisations across the UK and beyond.

Community fundraising

Community fundraising is very important – it generates donations while spreading the word about our work. We are always happy to speak to community groups (mainly in Scotland) and to promote fundraising events organised by our supporters. Contact us to arrange a talk

Regular donors

These are our core supporters, many of whom have been with us since the early days of the trust. Regular income is vital for our work as it helps us to pay the teachers and to make sure that the children in greatest need can get an education. Become a regular donor

Partners and ambassadors

We are lucky to have excellent partnerships with schools and community groups  who fundraise for us on a regular basis. The school partnerships extend beyond financial support, with letter exchanges helping to provide a real sense of connection between young people in Uganda and the UK.

We have a number of dedicated Uphill Ambassadors who are committed to spreading the word about our work.

Our Business Partnerships are also very valuable and help can come in many forms: Providing services on a pro bono basis, making donations, providing raffle prizes, offering discounts and sponsoring events – there are many ways that a business can support the work that we do.

Please contact us if you would like to help!
