Succession Planning

You can make sure the impact your CAF Charitable Trust has had continues beyond your lifetime by nominating a Successor, or sending us your Letter of Wishes.

How do I appoint a Successor?

You can nominate up to two Successors for each CAF Charitable Trust. If appointed, your Successor/s will be able to take over the running of your Trust after your lifetime.

To appoint a Successor, please complete your Successor/s details and ask them to sign the Successor declaration.
