Donations through this page support poverty relief programs in Africa and can't be restricted to emergency relief or other specific campaigns.

Donations made to GDUK (less transaction fees) are granted to GiveDirectly for cash transfer programs in Africa only. Funds are directed by GDUK’s board of trustees and cannot be allocated to specific programs by donors.

UK taxpayers can donate here through our official partner and registered trust GiveDirectly UK (GDUK). Our charity number is 1167938.

GDUK reclaims Gift Aid which boosts donations by 25p for each £1 donated. Higher and additional rate taxpayers can also reclaim additional tax relief via their Self Assessment returns.

If you have any questions about giving from the UK, please email us at
