How our funds work

UCLH Charity exists to support the work of UCL Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Our work covers a vast range of specialisms and we know that most people choose to support us for a particular reason.

That’s why we run a large number of funds that can only be used for specific wards, departments or areas of research, so that donors can support the area that interests them most or has touched their lives.

We make sure that the money is used as effectively as possible, by working closely with the senior staff associated with each fund. They know best what will make a difference to their patients and choose how the money is spent.

And because our investment income covers the Charity's central costs, we can guarantee that 100% of the donations received are used for charitable purposes.

Here are just some of the wide-ranging initiatives that you can provide funds for.
