Core Funds

This is a general purpose fund which covers pro bono work, events or activity costs, our overhead, and eventually staff salary.


If there is a specific project or activity that you wish to donate towards then a grant is the best option. This ensures your funds go towards a project, and only that project. Please contact us for more information.

Other ways to contribute:

Money is not the only way you can help. If you are interested in contributing to our blog or our other social media outlets, please let us know.

At the moment, all of the time we spend on the Tea Leaf Center is as volunteers. We produce two monthly newsletters, maintain social media, and write a monthly blog.

Research Support

Below is a list of some of our services. If you support research organizations, researchers, or research projects, we can help.

Do you want to hire us?

The Tea Leaf Center does not act as a third party for grant distribution nor does the The Leaf Center manage research projects conducted by other organizations. We work in collaboration with local researchers so that ownership is kept with them. The Tea Leaf Center is not the primary research team but we also understand that organizations you support have different needs and capacities. Therefore, the Tea Leaf Center can step-in at any point in the research process to provide help and guidance. Or, when needed by incorporating as much of the local organization's inputs as possible to help complete their projects.

If you need our assistance with research conducted by the organizations you fund, we ask that that you hire the Tea Leaf Center as a technical consultant to their projects and with their buy-in.
