PAF Guide

The Complete Guide to Australia’s

Private & Public Ancillary Funds





The Complete Guide to Australia’s Private & Public Ancillary Funds (The PAF Guide) places thousands of Private Ancillary Funds and Public Ancillary Funds and more than 11 billion dollars at your fingertips.

Private Ancillary Funds (PAFs) and Public Ancillary Funds (PuAFs) are an essential source of financial support for not-for-profit organisations. Whether you want to seek out major gifts, grants for not-for-profits, grants for charities, build relationships with prospects, or find corporate sponsorships, our PAF Guide will provide you with everything you need to connect with donors and nurture new revenue streams.


The process of identifying Private Ancillary Funds and Public Ancillary Funds, gathering information, selecting lucrative prospects, and reaching out to contacts is very time-consuming — and often expensive — for an organisation to do by itself. Our PAF Guide is an “industry-insider” resource that provides comprehensive and up-to-date information (collected from public sources and pay-for-content sources) about every Private and Public Ancillary Fund that is registered in Australia. 

Use the PAF Guide to search and access valuable information:

  • Contact details and geographic location

  • Director details and professional history

  • Funding categories and regions

  • Philanthropic track record

  • Application guidelines and procedures

  • Size and capacity
