Trusts & Philanthropy

With the support of valued trusts, foundations and generous individual donors, we can reach more communities that are suffering from a lack of waste management. Your support will increase innovation to keep materials in the loop, prevent pollution and create green employment opportunities for vulnerable and marginalised people.

We welcome flexible donations or you can choose to restrict your gift to a specific project. Either way, a partnership with WasteAid will deliver measurable impact. Whatever you decide, if you entrust WasteAid with a major gift, we will keep you informed with personal updates about how your gift is being used and the impact it makes on the world.

The Dixon Foundation kindly made an unrestricted grant in 2021 to support the development and growth of WasteAid at a very challenging time.

Their grant contributed to the delivery of WasteAid’s projects in Cameroon and The Gambia, and helped the development of future projects by enabling engagement with key stakeholders and communities to identify their most pressing needs.

Their support has also enabled WasteAid to continue to raise the profile of waste management as a tool for sustainable development through improved communications, and of the climate impacts of poorly managed waste at COP26.

The Fore provided us with a three year Transformational Grant.

Part funded by The National Lottery’s Big Lottery Fund, this grant allowed us to grow our capacity and reach the next level in our organisational development, as well as respond to this huge demand for our services.

We were able to implement our Total Community Clean-Up approach in The Gambia and measure the impact of our work, so that we can continue to improve our approach in other areas.
