Inquire about a Charity

If you’re considering a request for a donation to a charity, do some research before you give. By finding out as much as you can about the charity, you can avoid fraudsters who try to take advantage of your generosity.

  • CESRA gives information about a charity based in Kenya at the request of an inquirer.
  • To inquire about any organization listed or not listed on our database please complete the form below.
  • It will take between 2 to 3 weeks to gather information of the Charity or organization that you are inquiring about, If it’s not listed on our database,
  • But it can take 1 week to give accreditation report for charities or organizations listed with us.  

If you think you’ve been the victim of a charity scam , file a complaint with CESRA. Your complaints can help detect patterns of wrong-doing and lead to investigations and prosecutions.
