How We Manage Your Money

The Ipswich Hospital Charitable Fund (known as The Ipswich Hospital Charity) is an NHS charity registered with, and regulated by the Charity Commission.

Our charitable donations are managed by the Charitable Funds Committee, a committee of The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust.  This committee acts as an agent of The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust Board in the administration of our charitable donations. The committee is responsible for controlling the use of our charity’s resources and ensuring that best practice is followed in the conduct of our affairs to fulfil our legal responsibilities.

Our funds are independent of, and are managed separately to the exchequer funds (government funds) of The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust. The Charity Commission has regulatory responsibility for ensuring the proper management of our charitable funds.

Every year hundreds of individuals, community groups and businesses generously donate money to help us achieve our aims. It is our job to make sure that the money is spent carefully and for the purposes for which it was given.
