Start your journey today
At this early stage, we’ll sit down with you to discuss your charitable objectives, the size of the fund you wish to create and the amount of time you wish to have your foundation running for. We have experts on hand to help you answer these questions
Next, we require you to complete an application form setting out the strategy and goals of your foundation. Your account can be set-up to run as a short-term project or a lifelong commitment
The micro-trust is designed to make it easy for you to support your chosen causes. You can fundraise towards your micro-trust and involve others in building the fund
We’re here to help with whatever your foundation needs – this can be tax and legal advice, providing trustees and more. We can put you in touch with other micro-trust account holders who will share their experiences and knowledge
