Start your non-profit organisation’s endowment today


What is a Future Fund?

A Future Fund is a low cost way to build an endowment, access fundraising and donation infrastructure, and grow your organisation’s own funds in our pooled ethical investments.

This is only available to DGR1 organisations within Australia.

Secure the future impact of your non-profit organisation with a Foundation SA Future Fund.

Speak with us today.

You can secure the future impact of your non-profit in three easy steps

1. Establish your fund


With a minimum initial contribution of $20,000, lay the foundations for your non-profit organisation’s long-term sustainability with a Foundation SA Future Fund. Donations are tax-deductible.

2. Build your endowment


You and your donors can make tax-deductible contributions at any time. All donations are responsibly invested for long-term growth.

3. Access your funds


You can continue to build your endowment in perpetuity or draw down the funds over time for any purpose, including operational costs.

The benefits of a Future Fund

The Future Fund is a hidden gem. Essentially it enables any DGR1 Not-For-Profit or For-Purpose organisation to invest money ($20,000 or more) ethically and receive a higher return than a bank account. It enables returns only available to larger organisations.


Flexible income

Income from the fund can be granted back to your organisation for any purpose including operational costs.

Risk management

The Future Fund is a Foundation SA sub-fund and so all trusteeship, governance, compliance and secretariat is done as part of the standard fee, making it easy to manage.

Donor gifts

A Future Fund offers an independent and secure option for donor gifts, including bequests.

Community of donors

Establishing a fund with Foundation SA connects you to others in the sector and a community of givers.
