Donations designated for the benefit of specific areas and departments within Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
Special Purpose Funds are created when funds are donated to us for a specific purpose. These could be funds donated to honour the care of a loved one on a ward, or to support a particular type of research. They are administered through:
Special Purpose Funds are donations with a specific purpose, and therefore have a restricted application. We ensure that these generously donated funds are managed carefully and provide the maximum benefit for patients and staff.
The funds rely solely on the generous donations of patients, staff and members of the public. Currently, we hold over 200 different funds of various sizes and restrictions.
Special Purpose Funds are used to directly benefit both patient experience and staff welfare by supporting a wide range of activities which are over and above what is normally available on NHS budgets.
This could include investment into education, research, equipment and patient care across many different wards, departments and clinics within Guy’s Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital and Evelina London Children’s Hospital as well as community sites.
Staff across Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust can apply for support from Special Purpose Funds to drive improvements in their area of the hospital. Share your idea with us today.
