Trusts and Foundations

Our partners create lasting change in
local communities

Charitable trusts and foundations can help them achieve larger scale transformation.  

Since 2002, Ethiopiaid has been developing excellent relationships with a small number of grant-making organisations who share our vision of an Ethiopia free from poverty, in which every person has access to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity.

Established by Reed Recruitment’s Founder Sir Alec Reed CBE, his daughter Alex Chapman is a Trustee on our Board. Alex has been involved in Ethiopiaid since its earliest beginnings in the UK in 1989 and has a strong family connection to Ethiopia.

If you are a Trustee, or linked with a Charitable Trust or Corporate Foundation, and are interested in our work, please get in touch. We are always keen to form new partnerships and explore opportunities where there is a good fit with our trusted local partners – many of whom have been with us for years, or even decades.

With thousands of families still waiting for our assistance, we’d like to discuss dedicated projects that fit with your specific interests and philanthropic objectives.

What you can expect

With a small, committed and experienced Trusts team, Ethiopiaid can provide you with:

  • Bespoke updates directly from our Ethiopian partners
  • Detailed project reports with beneficiary case studies and photos
  • Prompt grant receipts and acknowledgement
  • Financial accountability and transparency
  • The opportunity to visit Ethiopia and meet project staff and people you have helped to support
