Universal Charitable Fund (UCF)

Encouraging "local heroes" with small grants


Our focus is awarding grants to those small charities where "local heroes" do a great job and where small grants have a strong multiplier effect thanks to the input of volunteers.

The Universal Charitable Fund (UCF) was founded by local business people in South Australia as a simple and cost effective way to provide practical support and encouragement to local charities doing a terrific job in helping people in need both in SA and overseas.

Typically the grants currently range between $500 and $2,000. The recipients must be registered  with the ACNC and have tax deductible status (ITEC) and DGR1. Our key interest areas are

  • education,
  • health,
  • communities, and
  • youth & children

Help us to help them!

It's easy!
One reason for choosing GiveNow to manage online donations is to make it easy for you to choose the amount you want to donate and the frequency - whether it's a single amount or a regular contribution.

Directors' guarantee
UCF is committed to a simple, direct and cost effective way of operating so that funds go to where they are needed most and not consumed by administration costs.

To that end, the directors of the UCF meet all administrative and other costs associated with the operation of the fund so that 100% of your donation will go direct to the charities being supported.

That's right - every cent of your donation goes to support the charities!

Thank you for your support.
