Philanthropy

About

Individuals, businesses and communities are always connected and this is seen very much through philanthropy. Many people’s sense of achievement comes as much from sharing the benefits of success as from establishing success in the first place.

Modern philanthropy involves an investment of time and money rather than simple giving. As we advise both private wealth clients and charities, our strengths are perfectly suited to addressing these matters.

Our services include:

  • Strategy: we develop a strategy to match the aims of a donor and a charitable cause. A donor may then establish a foundation or work with existing organisations; this may include targets, collaborative working, and brand issues.
  • Structure: we will ensure that the structure suits your circumstances, is compliant and is flexible for the future
  • Systems: these include effective administration of grants, collaborations, risk management and appropriate due diligence
  • Tax planning: we advise on personal tax planning and work with specialist advisers to ensure arrangements are tax efficient and forward thinking.
  • Review: any arrangement must be reviewed periodically to ensure it remains fit for purpose.
