Chapel & York Family of Foundations

The Chapel & York Family of Foundations was established to increase the flow of philanthropic funds to organisations worldwide.

The Foundations offer charities, non‐profits, educational institutions, NGO’s and other organisations the opportunity to fundraise simply and effectively in countries without having to set up dedicated legal entities.

You can have a fund with one foundation or the Family of Foundations. Having a fund with a Foundation or the Family of Foundations means you can immediately fundraise in a country without worrying about the regulatory, banking, donation processing or technical issues as that is all done by the foundation.

Donations are made to the Foundation(s) where you have a fund(s). We can accept donations from individuals, company sponsorship, grants from trusts and foundations and even government funding.

Having a Family of Foundations means we can offer you one solution for numbers of countries. In addition to established Foundations in the USA, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and the Netherlands. We are setting up new Foundations in Switzerland and Canada in 2018 with France, Germany and the rest of Europe to follow.

We also support your fundraising with Local Fundraising Support Services. These include everything from a Local Representative to Grant Research and Writing to Event Management.

Donors who want to support charitable entities worldwide can support them through the local Foundation and be eligible for all legal and tax benefits of giving in that country.

When you are a member of Chapel & York, we look after you.

Join – Fund Level Options

Organisations can apply to have a fund with an Individual Foundation or the entire Family of Foundations under two levels — Affiliate Fund or Named Fund.

An Affiliate Fund is the less expensive option. You are listed as an Affiliate on the website and on a generic donation page drop-down list for donors to find you. There is an annual fee and a percentage of the funds you raise will be retained by the Foundation.

A Named Fund is the fund that gives your organisation the most name recognition and co-ordination with your existing entity. Retained fees are half of Affiliate Fund rates. You will have a branded webpage for online donations, a higher profile on our website and immediate notification of donations received.
