Special purpose funds

The charity oversees more than 400 donor-gifted funds each with a specific purpose to support a particular ward, department, area of research, service or group of patients. Through the generosity of our donors we are able to provide tailored funding opportunities to a wide range of Trust departments and services.

The charity team, trustees and designated special fund advisors — who are made up of suitably qualified staff from within Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust — identify ways to utilise the funds to make a real difference to the Trust’s work in line with donors’ wishes. 

Special Fund Advisers have delegated authority to spend funds in line with their specific purposes and agreed priorities, without the need for formal applications on each occasion of use.
