The objects given in the United Kingdom Falkland Islands Trust (UKFIT) Charitable Trust Deed are very wide, ranging from the advancement of education in the Falklands to the relief of sickness. Specific emphasis is given to educational and other charitable purposes in the Falkland Islands and their former Dependencies, (now South Georgia, the South Sandwich Islands and the British Antarctic Territory) with neighbouring seas. Over the past three decades the main objectives of the Trust have been to assist the Islands and their population by conducting beneficial projects not normally funded by Government, with an emphasis on scientific research.
Primary effort is directed towards programmes of research and advice on agriculture, forestry and rural development issues, or through use of the contacts and special skills of the Trust’s consultant to assist the people of the Falkland Islands in promoting and encouraging the sustainable growth of the rural economy.
Over the years, the Trust has actively promoted the scientific and development potential of the Falklands at many key national and international events and worked on a wide variety of rural development projects, many of which have been initiated by the Trust and then taken on by the Falkland Islands Government (FIG). These include:
Research on kelp harvesting for use as liquid fertiliser
Assisting with the establishment of an aquaculture industry
Research on soil improvement including an in-depth study on the processing of by products from the abattoir
Development of organic farming and the marketing of organic products
The selection and provenance of tree species
The development of Tussac grass as a source of animal feed and erosion inhibitor Research on calcareous base materials
Research on grains and grasses, growing paeonies for the European market, and the exploitation of Magellanic (red) currants
Work on a number of civic projects such as the Alexandra Wood at Port Howard Consultancy on aerial mapping
The development of a comprehensive science database for the Islands
Climate change studies

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
