Quest4Change operate in partnership with local organisations. For Quest4Change, this means setting up partnerships specific to the situation of the projects, striving for the maximum benefit through whichever structure is most appropriate.
With our South American projects, the vast majority do not have UK-based charities, which makes Quest4Change vital for processing volunteer donations, and for requesting funds from UK-based Trusts & Foundations.
The majority of our African project partners are also registered as UK charities as well. Whilst it is still Quest who manage the Africa volunteers, their donations largely are paid direct to the project partners, without Quest4Change’s involvement. We continue to support these projects through fundraising beyond this, largely with organised events and sponsored challenges.
