    Who should use this schedule

    Complete this schedule if your schedule is applying for endorsement as a deductible gift recipient under the category private ancillary fund (item number P.A.F).

    Private ancillary fund

    An ancillary fund is a fund established and maintained under a will or instrument of trust solely for the purpose of providing money, property or benefits to DGRs or the establishment of DGRs.

    To be a private ancillary fund (private AF) both of the following apply:

    • The trustee of the fund must be a constitutional corporation.
    • The trustee must agree to comply with the guidelines made by the Treasurer.

    Two types of ancillary funds can qualify for DGR status and income tax exempt status:

    • Private AFs are private in nature and are designed to encourage private philanthropy by providing private groups, such as businesses, families and individuals, with greater flexibility to set up trust funds for philanthropic purposes.
    • Public ancillary funds are different to private AFs
      • Public ancillary funds are a common structure for community and fundraising foundations.
      • They must invite the public to contribute to the fund.
       

    Both types of ancillary fund act only as intermediaries between donors and organisations that can receive tax deductible donations.

    If your fund does not qualify as a private AF, refer to the DGR table to see if another category applies – for example, a public ancillary fund.
