The ACNC describes ancillary funds as special funds that provide a link between people who want to give (known as ‘donors’) and organisations that receive tax deductible donations (known as ‘deductible gift recipients’ or DGRs). Ancillary funds are set up for the purpose of providing money, property or benefits to DGRs and are established and maintained under a will or instrument of trust. They are endorsed by the ATO as tax exempt. There are two types of ancillary funds:
- 1. Public – also known as PuAFs, seek donations from the public.
- 2. Private – also known as PAFs, use donations from business, families and individuals.
The Patricia Holdings NFP Pty Ltd constitution is suitable to use for trustee companies of ancillary funds both public and private.
