Is a Collective Fund For You?

Prism offers a unique and flexible service to groups and individuals who are fundraising a minimum of £25,000 a year towards a specific charitable cause. The Collective Fund model is aimed at those that are starting out on their charitable journey and want to benefit from Prism’s governing structure and charitable expertise. The Collective Fund model may also appeal to overseas charities that want to broaden their UK donor base and fundraise tax effectively.  

The Collective Fund model enables fundraisers to carry out their charitable activities by offering a time-efficient and cost-effective alternative to setting up a standalone charity. By setting up a Collective Fund with Prism, you become part of Prism’s charitable umbrella, which enables you to focus on fundraising and running your project. We ensure that all Collective Fund activities adhere to the increasingly complex regulatory framework. In addition to this we claim Gift Aid on your behalf, ensuring that all UK donors are giving in the most effective way.

  • 'Without Prism we simply wouldn't exist. There is no way we had the time, experience or resources at the beginning to setup as an independent charity and absorb donations, however being a fund under Prism meant we didn't need to get bogged down in the daunting process and were able to begin working, getting help to where it was needed most immediately. For the last 3 years we've been a fund and achieved amazing success under the guidance and support of the whole team.'
