Our Funders

When The Uphill Trust began 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 to the trust, as it generates donations while spreading the word about the work that we do. Trustees are always happy to speak to community groups (mainly in Scotland) and always  promote fundraising events organised by our supporters.

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.

Partners and ambassadors

We are lucky to have excellent partnerships with a number of schools and community groups who fundraise for us on a regular basis. The partnerships extend beyond financial support, with letter exchanges being established and a real sense of connection developing between young people in Uganda and the UK. We also have a number of dedicated Ambassadors who are committed to spreading the word about our work.
