Among the organizations benefitting from the Bali Ball:

Bali Children Foundation (Yayasan Samiarsa Seminyak)- On the forefront of reaching out to disadvantaged children in Bali's far North. Education in the village community is at the heart of the fundamental principles of BCF. During 2017-2018, added 250 students more to its schooling program.

Bali Kids (Yayasan Anak Anak Bali) - assisted by The Bali Ball since 2012 with funds raised helping complete the construction of a new purpose-built accommodation & medical center, helping to pay the costs of annual wages for teachers & nursing staff, and the purchase a new minibus to transport the children. In 2017-2018, Bali Kids treated more than 10,000 children through its outreach activities. Much of this cost of this was met by The Bali Ball.

Yayasan Samaritania was started in 2013 when Luke Stockley and others stepped in with help after seeing children scavenging for food on local rubbish tips. The Bali Ball has funded the refurbishment of a residence, new classrooms, basic educational equipment, new boy and girl’s dormitories, new shower rooms, new beds, and a new kitchen.

Bali Medika  - The Bali Ball support of Bali Medika provides sufficient means to offer FREE HIV testing. In the first 12 months of the Bali Ball supporting Bali Medika, an additional 600 tests (year-on-year) were carried out. This resulted in 113 individuals being identified as HIV+. They were quickly put on the right ARV (Anti-Retro-Viral) and now have their HIV under control.

Friends of Lembongan operates a fledgling recycling initiative supported by The Bali Ball. In the past 12 months, The Bali Ball has funded the purchase of a crushing/compacting press which allows the more recyclable plastic to be shipped to Bali and other parts of Indonesia and re-purposed in a sustainable, clean and green way. The Bali Ball also funded a collection truck which is now a regular site at hotels, villas and stores on the island.
