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.

There are two types of special ​purpose funds: those managed directly by the trustees through grant committees (Trustee Controlled Funds); and those which are managed by NHS staff under delegated authority (Fund Adviser Funds).
