What is a charitable fund?

Charitable funds give grants to people in financial need who meet their eligibility criteria, using a sum of money that the grant-giving charity has set aside for this purpose.

They are generally run by charities or organisations (such as energy companies) that have grant giving as part of their aims and objectives.

Although some grant-giving charities have only one fund, others run more than one fund that give money for different purposes.

Some charitable funds also provide other kinds of support and services to the people who they help.
