Setting up a fund, our processes simplified:
Contact CCF if you want to explore how CCF might be able to help with your charitable giving. As you will discover, there are various options – including setting up a charitable fund
Complete a simple charitable fund agreement if that is the option that best fits your needs. You choose the fund’s name, and agree the issues you want to support and the geographical area you want to benefit
Consider the option of investing some of the fund money for the long term, so that the fund itself becomes a legacy and a sustainable source of support to local good causes into the future
Choose how involved you want to be in selecting groups to support. Do you want to meet and discuss applications put forward by CCF, or take a more hands-off approach, allowing CCF to select projects that are the best fit for your fund criteria?
Make your donation(s) in to the fund and get involved in the grant-making from the fund as your time and interests allow. You can also meet with other CCF donors to share experiences and hear about the wider work of CCF
You’ll receive regular feedback on the impact of the grants made from your fund, and can decide whether you want to add further donations to the fund, or to vary the focus and purpose of the fund in any way
