About Quicken Trust

Welcome to Quicken Trust's fundraising pages! To donate to our Christmas 2019 Appeal click here: Give Light

Quicken Trust is a small charity demonstrating God’s love in action in support of impoverished children in the village of Kabubbu, Uganda.

Supporters partnering the funding of Kabubbu Kid’s education & healthcare ensure they flourish, and free themselves from the injustice of poverty - AIDS, famine, war, and corruption - imposed by others.

The aim for the children is self-determination, and for the village a self-sustaining community. The list of infrastructure developments is long! In 2010 Uganda’s Vice-President, Edward Ssekandi, said: “This is the finest example of rural development I have ever seen or heard of in Uganda.”

A small charity achieving BIG things! Partnered children achieve diploma & degree level education because 100% of donations, reach Kabubbu Kids and ensure they have an opportunity for transformation. That’s unique to Quicken Trust. Our Sussex office is funded through Gift Aid.

This Christmas please place your money where you can follow it.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
