A choice of fund types

Depending on what you want to achieve with your giving, you can give now and/or invest funds to help future generations. Funds are based upon 10 Thriving Communities themes and can be changed yearly depending on our donors’ wishes and can also be restricted according to geographic area.

Many donors like to involve their families in their giving, and building a fund with the Foundation enables them to keep giving throughout their lives. Donors can create ‘in memory’ funds to celebrate their loved ones after they are gone or leave a legacy to the Foundation in their own wills to keep giving to issues they care about. These can be both for immediate or endowed giving.

Several ways to make a difference

Our team works with each fund holder to develop a portfolio of giving in line with their wishes to maximise the impact of their philanthropy.

  • Establish your own fund to give to a cause you care about
  • Pool your giving with others when you donate to the Foundation’s Thriving Communities themes
  • Support the Foundation directly and increase the impact we make locally
