Trusts and foundations

Practical Action's partnerships with charitable trusts and foundations are vital to our work

The support of your trust or foundation can help Practical Action to use technology to challenge the poverty of the world’s poorest people. You can choose to fund a specific international development project, or allow us to use your gift wherever the need is greatest. However you decide to support us, you can trust that your donation will enable Practical Action to use simple, sustainable solutions to transform the lives of millions of poor women, men and children across the developing world.

Your support can help our work with vulnerable communities to protect them against flooding by establishing early warning systems or building dams to prevent flood water from destroying homes, crops and animals.

Your donation can fund projects with poor farmers, helping them to grow better crops, improve their livestock’s health and secure the best possible price for their goods at market.

Your partnership can allow us to make sure that every family has access to clean water and proper toilets so that cholera, diarrhoea and typhoid are diseases of the past.

Your gift can enable us to use modern technology to improve farmers’ knowledge by creating podcasts in local dialects so that farmers can listen to lessons on vaccinating their livestock or other essential skills.

We pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with our trusts and foundations. We share stories of success with you, send prompt and accurate reports, and at all times remember that together we are committed to achieving real and lasting change for poor people across the developing world.

We have a dedicated team who will help identify a suitable project to benefit from your trust’s support. If you’d like to talk to us about what your trust or foundation can do to challenge poverty in the developing world, please contact Warwick Franklin, Fundraising Manager, on 01926 634446, or by email at
