Philanthropy | ActionAid UK


At ActionAid we build long-term relationships with individuals, trusts and foundations, and companies who provide significant funding to help us end poverty. Our team can provide you with reports; invite you to events with our country programme staff and other supporters; offer you the chance to visit our work; and give you insight into global events and emergencies.

Why ActionAid?

"I often get asked 'why should we work with ActionAid?'

Well, the answer isn’t so difficult. At ActionAid, I believe we don't just do different things, we do things differently. We work in solidarity with poor communities over many years - meaning that the people who are most affected by poverty are telling us what needs to be done and how. 

Together, we can ensure that your gift has the maximum impact and creates sustainable change for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable women and girls. Partnering with ActionAid means you can change lives, for good."

Sujit Peris, Head of Philanthropy & Partnerships

What our supporters say

"What I loved about ActionAid from the beginning was that they let me be involved. I said to them, ‘I don’t want to just give you money’, because I wanted to see first-hand what was happening. I’ve been able to come to Myanmar year after year and it’s so incredible to see the way the programme has developed. It’s been the best thing I’ve ever done in my life. It has helped change me and I’m very grateful to ActionAid for letting me be part of it."

Alex Graham, who has supported ActionAid’s work in Asia for several years


"Medicor has found in ActionAid a partner who has the ability and skills enabling them to deliver quality results with their high levels of expertise and excellent relationships with local communities, local leaders and governments."

Robert Bruh from Medicor Foundation, who support development projects in poor countries all over the world
