Legacies and in memoriam

With so many mouths to feed, all donations are vital and enable us to continue caring for the primates at Mefou. By leaving Ape Action Africa a gift in your will, you will be supporting our ground-breaking work in Cameroon, from feeding and rehabilitating the primates to our education program, as well as protecting future generations of primates.

A gift of any size could make a huge difference to the long-term survival of these incredible primates.  If you would like to leave a gift in your will to Ape Action Africa or would like to donate in memory of a loved one, please email us at [email protected].

Give As You Earn Scheme


Give As You Earn (GAYE) is a scheme that enables employees to donate to any UK charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted), meaning that you receive immediate tax relief.

Check if your employer runs a payroll giving scheme at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). If they are not already signed up, you can nominate your employer on the CAF website, and it will do all the talking for you, approaching your firm with details of the scheme.


Offering Match Giving is a powerful and popular way of encouraging employees to sign up for Payroll Giving. Your company can make donations that match your staff's contributions – potentially doubling the money that will help save more of Cameroon's primates. 

Joining in a GAYE scheme costs the company nothing. It is a straightforward and cost-effective way to engage with staff and boost your company's ethical credentials.
