Welcome to Australian Philanthropic Services

Australian Philanthropic Services is a not-for-profit organisation that inspires effective philanthropy, and provides education and practical support for individuals and advisers.

  1. We set up and administer private ancillary funds for individuals,  families and businesses across Australia. Read more about the benefits of private ancillary funds.
  2. We offer a public ancillary fund, the APS Foundation, in which people can establish a named giving (sub) fund.
  3. We provide grantmaking guidance and support, to help people be more effective with their giving.

We’re unique because we’re specialists in philanthropy, not-for-profit and completely independent.
