What do we do with donations?

There are two types of donations we receive when fundraising for CALM Africa: unrestricted and restricted.

Unrestricted funds: 

Donations we provide to CALM Africa which are not attached to any specific project or piece of work.

This funding is our most important means of helping CALM Africa as it allows us to allocate the funding where it is most needed at any given time. This may include ensuring CALM Africa staff are paid for the crucial work that they do, any maintenance and improvements of facilities or particular Outreach work. An on-going, general fund is essential for CALM Africa to operate and heavily supported by the activities of CFU. 

Restricted funds: 

Project-specific donations, activities often led by volunteers of CALM Africa.

We always encourage volunteers to carry out fundraising activities for projects they have identified, provide them with advice and fundraising services. In an effort to ensure sustainable development, we advise volunteers on the viability of their project and, as far as possible, aim to support projects which are aligned with CALM Africa’s core activities and capacity.

We will be adding more information to our website very soon about current campaigns and projects. If you’d like more information about projects you can support or running fundraising activities for a project, please email fundraising@childrenfirstuganda.co.uk
