Benefits

Creating a named fund:

Quartet Community Foundation named funds offer all the flexibility and control of your own charitable trust without the administrative burden that running such a trust involves. In addition you have access to expert advice and support from QCF to help you develop your giving strategy.

Endowment fund

This is a permanent, capital fund set up with a minimum pledge of £15,000, which can be made as a one-off gift or built-up over several years. The capital is invested and the income used to make grants year after year.

The very nature of endowment means this type of fund will go on helping your local community in perpetuity. It’s like having your own charitable trust, but we undertake all the investment and administration – yet you still choose which causes you wish to support.

To discuss the options open to you, please contact ronnie.brown@quartetcf.org.uk or phone 0117 989 7705.

Revenue fund

If you want to see your charitable giving being put to immediate use in the community and are able to give £10,000 or more per annum, then a Named Revenue Fund is the best option for you. Your donation will be used to address priority needs with you choosing which causes you wish to support.
