How do I make a donation in memory of a loved one?

Giving in memory of someone special is a way of commemorating their life at a difficult time. You may want to make a donation in memory or ask for donations rather than flowers at a funeral.

Can I donate a specific item such as a goat, and how much will this cost?

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that your donation will be used for any specific item, as we use all the money we receive where it will be as effective as it possibly can be. We are proud to say that we spent 88% of our 2015 income on charitable activities.

The costs of specific items are different in each country. For example, the price of goats can vary hugely, depending on the region where the goat is being sold, and according to its breed. Farm Africa also provides training for farmers who have not kept goats before to make sure that they know how to keep them healthy. A typical cost for both the goat and the training to look after it is £60.

How do I leave a gift to Farm Africa in my Will?

You can help Africa’s farmers feed Africa’s people without the need for food aid by remembering Farm Africa in your Will. We understand that making your Will is a personal matter and we are here to help however we can.

I have a question about my donation - who can I contact?

If you have any questions about your donation to Farm Africa, please contact our supporter services team on 020 7430 0440 or info@farmafrica.org.
