  • Extension Fund (non-tax deductible) ABN 57 485 460 977 - is a non-tax-deductible charitable Trust Fund. It can make grants for charitable purposes to organisations and to individuals; the essential characteristic being that it is charitable at law and of recognised benefit to the community.

  • The donor requests a sub-fund be maintained by the Trustee for the recording of gifts from the donor and from others, and the recording of grants from the sub-fund. (Please select the relevant Trust Fund).

  • 2. Selecting a name

  • You may request a name for the sub-fund/Gumnut Account. This can be after yourself, your family, a loved one, a business, for a relevant cause or issue, or after something meaningful to you. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) does not allow the use of the words ‘foundation’ or ‘trust’ to be used in the name of sub-funds, as this suggests a separate legal entity.
