How to support us


All money raised by TEA Cares goes directly to our 5 supported NGOs. Our board members are all volunteers.

  • If you would like to make a donation (one off or a regular one) please contact us
  • You can also donate during TEA events (Annual picnic, Halloween party, Holiday gala). 

A representative from TEA Cares will always be present. Most of the times, we organise a fundraiser such as a raffle or games for the children but spontaneous donations are of course welcome.



Every month, TEA Cares organises a goods collection for one or several of its supported NGOs. 

The collected goods go directly to them.

Giving back to the community is also possible by giving a bit of our time. Our 5 supported NGOs have different needs in term of volunteering so even with 1 hour per month you can help them. You can send an email to if you are interested in volunteering.
