Welcome to Australian Philanthropic Services

We are a not-for-profit organisation that can help you make the most of your giving. We inspire and support effective philanthropy, and provide education for individuals and advisers.

  1. We set up and administer private ancillary funds for individuals and families, and work with wealth advisers to help them help their clients do the same.
  2. We offer a public ancillary fund, and work with other interested groups who wish to establish their own public ancillary fund.
  3. We help individuals and foundations to plan their grantmaking so they can support the community more effectively.

We’re unique because we’re completely independent, not-for-profit, and charge very modest fees. We’re focused on helping you to plan your giving, so your philanthropic journey is simple, strategic and rewarding.
