Speak to us

Philanthropy

We help individuals, families and organisations from across the world to design and implement their philanthropic strategies, providing tailored advice to ensure that programmatic, governance and regulatory frameworks are always aligned with the overarching philanthropic ambition.

Sectors and Services

Philanthropy

What we do:

Often working alongside family offices, philanthropy and financial advisors, we can support individuals from the very beginning of their journey (e.g. identifying the most appropriate jurisdiction to base a philanthropic project) and advising appropriate ways to structure their giving), to further down the line (e.g. advising on the ongoing regulatory, tax and compliance considerations in relation to charitable foundations).

We can help you to:

  • Set objectives
  • Develop a strategy
  • Create structures
  • Give tax efficiently
  • Research potential charity partners
  • Identify charitable pathways
  • Assess impact and reporting

We work with specialist lawyers to advise on:

  • How to structure philanthropic projects, including the most suitable methods of giving, whether to an existing charity, an individual’s foundation, or to a DAF
  • The range of not for profit structures available
  • Considerations as to how to engage the next generation in philanthropic projects and how succession planning can be appropriately addressed
  • Governance and board responsibilities

We also provide a range of secretarial, administration and accounting support services.
