Named Sub-Funds

Our donors reflect the diversity of the community and contribute for different reasons, but are connected by a sense of importance of place-based giving and philanthropy.

With a Named Sub-Fund you can recommend the preferred charities or causes in the inner north that you wish to support each year, and you can name your fund to honour someone, a special place, or something of special importance to you. A Named Sub-Fund can be a tribute, or can acknowledge a life well lived, a generous spirit, or a proud achievement. A Named Sub-Fund gives you the chance to provide community assistance at a grass-roots and personal level.

Establishing a Named Sub-Fund in perpetuity with the Inner North Community Foundation is simple. There is no starting amount, with granting to local groups available once the fund builds to $10,000. There are no establishment fees or ongoing management fees!

Establishing your own Named Sub-Fund is an easy and great way to involve family members or an entire company in a meaningful and fulfilling giving experience as donations can be made to Named Funds at any time by the original donor or by family members, friends or employees. All donations are fully tax deductible and we manage all governance and administration for you – at no cost. And 100% of the money spent with or through the Foundation returns a direct benefit to people in the inner north.

Join the growing number of individuals, families and organisations who have established a sub-fund that reflect their sustained commitment to the inner north. Some examples of how people use the Foundation as a platform for their philanthropy are below:
