How You Can Help
STT relies heavily on our support network of donors as we do not receive any Government funding and we do need your help.
Over 90 pence in every pound donated goes directly to our work in Tanzania.
Any amount, no matter how little or small, will make a difference. Here are some examples of what your money could do:
- £10 will pay for a family to receive an energy efficient stove
- £80 will pay for all the equipment to set up a nursery
- £1000 will pay for a motor bike which will help STT to regularly work in more villages.
Ways to give
Donate for Free
On-line: You can donate straightaway by credit card using our secure online form.
By post: If you prefer, you can fill in this form and send STT a gift in the form of a cheque.
Please note: If you are giving by post and would like to take advantage of Gift Aid, please fill in the Gift Aid Declaration Form and post it with your gift.
Cheques can be made payable to ‘Sunseed Tanzania Trust’ and sent to Kerr Baillie, Treasurer, STT, 18a Kirkhill Gardens, Penicuik, Midlothian, EH26 8JE.
Giving regularly, by standing order or through your payroll at work, helps us know what funds we will be receiving, therefore making our financial planning easier and more efficient. Any amount you can give will be valuable to us and will be used directly to help our projects in Tanzania. Follow this link for the standing order mandate form.
Whichever way you choose, please take advantage of the Gift Aid scheme. Through this government scheme, STT can receive extra money from the Inland Revenue, boosting donations by nearly 30%, at no extra cost to you.
Join Our Supporters Network: If you would like to receive regular newsletters and updates about our work, follow this link to the supporters network form and print it out and return it to us with your subscription. We hope to be able to start local groups in areas where we have several supporters. The groups would raise awareness of our work in their community and organise fundraising activities such as sponsored events, concerts, coffee mornings, anything that members can think of. Hopefully you would meet like-minded people and have fun while helping a good cause.
