Named Sub-Funds

Simplify your giving

A named sub-fund (also known as a donor-advised fund) is the easiest and most accessible way to structure your giving. Set up a sub-fund with us and we’ll take care of the administration and compliance, allowing you to focus on the granting.

Put a name on your giving

Sub-funds can be named after an individual or group or may even have their own unique identity – it’s up to you.

Donate now

You can donate into your sub-fund at any time. To get your balance growing quickly, you can also ask others to contribute. All sub-funds are eligible to fundraise in accordance with our fundraising guidelines.

Give later

Funds can be distributed at any time to the charitable organisations of your choosing.
