“I started the Named Sub Fund with Border Trust as a simple way to create a personal philanthropic structure so my focus would be on providing regular funds and grant making.

My aim for the sub fund is that it becomes self-sustaining while providing much needed grants to local charities and community groups”.

A long-time Border Trust donor and active community member, Kate Sleeman established a Named Sub Fund in 2017.

With an initial focus on food security and homelessness, the Sub-Fund now provides Kate with capacity to contribute to projects and organisations that she feels a deep connection to, as illustrated in the diversity of her grant distributions, below.

Katharine Sleeman Named Sub Fund has generously supported these community initiative:
