Information for not-for-profits

Australian Philanthropic Services (APS) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that inspires and supports effective philanthropy. We set up and administer private ancillary funds and offer a public ancillary fund, the APS Foundation, in which people can establish a named giving (sub) fund. We also provide grantmaking guidance and advice to help people be more effective with their giving.

Our grantmaking support is client-directed, and as such we do not actively promote specific organisations to our clients.  However, we always want to learn about organisations doing great work in the community that might fit the interests of specific clients.

  • We have developed this response to charities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • You can provide some information about your organisation to us via our charity details form, which will be added to our database.
  • If you believe you are already on our database and would like to update your information, please contact us.

Please note: Private and public ancillary funds can only give to registered charities in Australia with DGR-1 status.
