What is Charity Adoption?


Prospero World is committed to strengthening the charitable sector, to sharing best practices and to empowering pioneers to champion the causes they care about most.


For many, the process of registering a UK Charity is daunting, time consuming, and not always feasible in terms of resources. Our charity adoption programme supports projects that lack the time and resources to set up and manage their own UK registered charity. 


Our charity adoption programme helps non-UK registered charities and charitable initiatives, to benefit from our charitable status and expertise. Donations can be made to Prospero in support of their work, and we will claim the Gift Aid - a UK government scheme that allows charities to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated to them. This means we can increase support for the work of our adopted charities, before passing donations on to them. We are also able to receive US tax-deductible donations from US taxpaying donors through the 501c3 scheme and are members of Transnational Giving Europe, enabling us to receive donations tax efficiently from many of our European neighbours.


Our adoption scheme is tailor-made to enable projects to focus on the causes they care most about, without needing to worry about the administration and governance involved in running a UK registered charity. 


Charity Adoption 2021


In 2021 we are committed to expanding our Charity Adoption Programme. Our charity adoption programme doesn’t just enable charities to receive donations in a tax efficient manner from UK donors: it affords charities a host of additional benefits and provides UK donors with peace of mind as well as tax deductible receipts for the charitable donations they have made.


In the coming year, Prospero World will handpick organisations who we consider to be outstanding, to whom we believe we can add value and whose aims are aligned with our own.

If the Prospero World’s Charity Adoption Programme sounds like it might be a fit for your project please read about the criteria and how to apply or contact Anna-Louisa Psarras for more information. 

The deadline for the next round of applications is 5th of April 2021, 12PM UK time. 




“We are so happy with the way the evening turned out. So many generous individuals and companies were involved. The show brought out the incredible talent of Philippine designers and raised over 10 million pesos for CENTEX. It

was a pleasure to work with (Prospero World's) talented, fun and dedicated team”
