Voluntary Trust Fund

GUS is run by volunteers who are members and their contributions. Our main source of funds is contribution paid by members. We use organise cultural musical shows by bringing Senegambian artists from Africa over to the UK to promote our culture and raise funds at the same time. We organise annual events such as summer barbeques, family fun days and Eid Parties for fun and income generation as well.

Repartriation Fund

Recently, we have been contacted for help by families whose relatives have died and wish to send the body back home for burial as preferred in The Gambian community. This is inevitable and cost no less than £3000. We've set up a special fund for this to which people can contribute. This would ensure there are available funds for use in the inevitable event of death of a member in the UK and the body is needed to be sent back to the Gambia for burial.

We are appealing to all Gambians and non-Gambians alike to help us raise needed funds in order to meet our charity objectives. We appreciate all contributions our volunteers and sponsors are making geared towards improving the lives of many vulnerable people while promoting Gambian Culture .

Become a member or make a gift

Our membership is open to all Gambians and friends of The Gambia. We wish to hear from everyone and anyone who has The Gambia at heart. Contact us today and register to become a member. If you don’t want to become a member you can still give any amount monthly by setting up a direct debit to our account.

You can also make a single payment by cash, cheque or bank transfer to our account:

Cash donations can be paid directly into The GUS bank account:

Account name: The Gambia United Society

Account No: 77 19 44 38

Sort Code: 60 03 36

Bank: Natwest Bank Plc.

Help fund a project

You can donate to a specific project, for example the malaria project and keep up to date with the project development. £5.00 would buy a mosquito net and you could save the life of a child in The Gambia.

Donate goods

You could support us by donating us unwanted computers, books and clothes suitable for reuse. These items are as good as new to the people receiving them and would go a long way in improving their livelihood.

    This report highlights how we are currently performing and the ways we are working to improve our services. Over the years, the organisation has worked hard to improve in all areas of operation in spite of the challenges we faced, mostly due to lack of funds. We are determined to move to higher heights and reach out to as many people as possible to make the GUS more national.

    On the financial front, we are operating on limited funds. We have made long-term investments in anticipation that the Charity will become self-sustainable in the coming years.
