How Can You Help

Fundraising

The Bumba Foundation’s source of funding comes from grants, donations, fundraising activities (sponsored events, charity meals etc) and support from companies as part of their CSR programmes. As a small charity run by volunteers, we maximise the funds we raise by having no overheads or admin costs, and ensure the projects are owned within the community, whilst maximising the funds available to have the greatest impact.

Get Involved

There are many ways you can help.

Annual Charity Dinner

Each year in June the Bumba Foundation hosts a charity dinner which allows supporters to hear about the successes of the past year, raise funds, have a great meal and catch up with friends. If you would like to attend the dinner, host a table for 8-12 friends or business clients, donate auction items or raffle prizes or even provide sponsorship, please get in touch and it would be fantastic to have you on board. You will always have a warm welcome at our charity dinner.

Sponsored Events

If you would like organise and run a sponsored event to support the Bumba Foundation, please let us know and we can set you up with your own fundraising page through virgin money. In the past our supporters have jumped out of airplanes, run marathons, cycled and walked to support our activities.. 

Fundraising Activities

Why don’t you get your friends, work colleagues or school friends to take part in a fun fundraising event? In the past supporters have held wine tastings, BBQ’s, cake sales, classroom challenges and collections in their workplaces… the list is endless but the key is to have fun and at the same time you are raising funds for the Bumba Foundation and allowing us to provide education and create smiles…

Community Project's

Over the past few years, we have been joined by friends of the Bumba Foundation on visits to Uganda to take part in community projects. During these visits the team cover their own costs and also raise the funds to implement community projects in Uganda with the young people and community.

Piggy Banks

With the support of “Walker Forestry Services” we created the Bumba Foundation Piggy Banks and challenged our supporters to collect their spare change and donate it to the Bumba Foundation. So far we have raised over £2500 from the “BumbaPigs tour”.

Corporate / Company Support

Working in partnership with corporate companies has allowed us to access additional support and provide a quality CSR value for the company. An example of this support was in 2020/21 when Ashbourne Homes Ltd and TRS sponsored the development of our Impact Documentary Film which allowed us demonstrate the impact of our work, increase the Bumba Foundations exposure and increase our fundraising potential.
