Named Funds

Simplify your giving

A Named Fund (also known as a donor-advised fund or sub-fund) is the easiest and most accessible way to structure your giving. Set up a Named 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

Named 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 Named Fund at any time. To get your balance growing quickly, you can also ask others to contribute. All Named 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.
