Since 1998 KitAid has found a new home for more than 650,000 items of donated kit across Africa, South America, Asia and Eastern Europe. The late Graham Taylor OBE was Patron of the charity until his untimely passing in 2017.
KitAid is run entirely by volunteers and it operates on a small but tightly controlled budget. It depends on financial donations to meet courier collection costs, storage hire costs along with basic admin and promotion costs. None of the volunteers receive payment and the annual running costs amount to circa £6,000. Although not a large figure, the amount still has to be found each year by a variety of different fundraising activities.
We really appreciate your financial support as this takes the pressure off us in terms of spending time on fundraising when it could be better utilised in collecting, sorting and sending out kit across the developing world.
Thank you for your support, not only from KitAid but also from the thousands of children and adults who benefit from our work and from your support.
