Ancillary funds are charitable trusts established by deed for the purpose of making grants for public benefit in Australia. They may not operate programs or deliver services, but instead play a supporting role through funding eligible nonprofit organisations. There are two types of ancillary funds, private and public. Public Ancillary Funds (known as PubAFs) must fundraise from the public and receive gifts from a wide donor group. Common PubAF categories include corporate foundations, community foundations, and ‘flow-through’ or fundraising foundations for individual charities, such as hospitals or schools. Some PubAFs may allow donors to establish named sub-funds or management accounts within the foundation.
