If you want to fundraise or operate programmes in another country, Chapel & York has the answers

Chapel & York provides solutions for charities, educational institutions, NGOs and non-profits wanting to fundraise or run programmes in another country. We set up and manage charitable organisations or provide existing foundations which organisations can join. No matter what level of engagement you want in the new country, Chapel and York will ensure the best fit solution is chosen for your organisation.

If we set up a charitable entity for you, we can provide all the services to operate it including regulatory requirements, administration, donations processing and book-keeping. We also provide international fundraising services.

Unlike consultants, we always try to offer fixed fees for our services.

During the last 20 years, Chapel and York has set up and run more than 150 organisations around the world and over 1000 organisations have joined our foundations.

Setting up a charitable organisation in another country can be a daunting experience. Who should be on the board? What address should you use? How do i draft the bylaws? What is required for to file an application?

For 20 years Chapel & York has answered these questions for educational institutions, charities and NGO’s. We can establish an organisation in any country where having a local entity is necessary – for tax, cultural or operational reasons. Our dedicated setup team will help you through the process.


The Chapel & York Family of Foundations were established to increase the flow of philanthropic funds to organisations worldwide.

The Foundations offers charities, non‐profits, educational institutions, NGO’s and other organisations the opportunity to fundraise simply and effectively in countries without having to set up dedicated legal entities.

You can join one foundation or the family. A membership with a Foundation or the Family of Foundations means you can immediately fundraise in a country without worrying about the regulatory, banking, donation processing or technical issues as that is all done for you.


Chapel & York International fundraising advisers are experienced in cross-border fundraising. They are uniquely experienced in working alongside fundraisers and development officers from the ‘home’ organisation. In-country advisers will ensure you have the best advice for that country.

The in-country Support Services we offer complement our management packages and operate independently to support your Development or Fundraising Office.


Every organisation has regulatory, legal, financial and administrative requirements to meet in order to maintain its status as a charitable entity.

Chapel & York ensures that client organisations are fully compliant with all regulations and operate as effectively as possible. Depending on the amount of activity of an organisation and its needs in that country, we can provide anything from a Standard Management Service to a fully inclusive Development Staff Programme.
