Other ways to donate


Are you interested in having an impact in your community now? Support research based activities, designed to address educational disadvantage.

A Personalised Account can be named after you, a company or an organisation, or it can perpetuate the memory of someone you admire.

The general public may also contribute to these accounts.


You can open a personalised account within the Foundation. A personalised account is an excellent way to celebrate an individual's life and achievements forever.

You can specify a purpose rather that a specific project for your account to support. You can review current or proposed activities and make funding recommendations to us. You can also choose a successor to make recommendations on your behalf when you are no longer able to do so.

Income produced within the fund is tax free.

You can

  • Act as Trustee and have an equal say in investment choices.
