Open a Sub Fund
Starting a Sub Fund is a great way to commence your philanthropic journey.
It's like starting a foundation without all the fuss and expense.
Opening a Sub Fund is an easy and great way to involve family members or an entire company in a meaningful and fulfilling giving experience.
For you, your family and friends, a Sub Fund can be a tribute, acknowledging a life well lived. It gives you the chance to provide community assistance at a grass-roots, high impact level.
Sub Funds can be named in memory of a loved one, for your family, a workplace or the cause you wish to support.
A named Sub Fund is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
By establishing a Sub Fund you decide which causes are important to you and what will you support. Plus, with a community foundation, you can encourage others to give tax-deductible donations to scale your impact faster.
Once a year, every year, you can discuss with Sydney Community Foundation how the income earned on your named fund is distributed.
You can request to support a particular organisation, cause or area of interest that is meaningful for you (and that is eligible according to the Deed of Trust of the Sydney Community Foundation).
