Helping charitable donors and charities to achieve their philanthropic goals

Our Mission

We help charitable donors - individuals, Family Offices, trusts and foundations and businesses to achieve their philanthropic goals.

We find out what you care about and identify where and how your financial support can have the biggest impact through effective and positive philanthropy.

We use our expertise and experience across the charitable sector to guide you on a philanthropic journey, from generating ideas to developing strategies and measuring impact.

We offer value for money, ensuring efficiency and good practice throughout the philanthropic process, to make your charitable giving go further.


What We Do

for Philanthropists

Because we believe that philanthropy is, at heart, a personal endeavour and an intrinsic part of wealth management, we offer a personal, bespoke and discrete service to help our clients achieve their philanthropic goals.

We align donors with charities that match their values, personal interests and philanthropic aspirations and we support that process.

Our services include developing funding strategies, devising giving portfolios, assessing charities and grant applications on behalf of our clients (including research and due diligence) and evaluating impact. 

If you would like to book a free one hour online introductory Why Philanthropy? session, please get in touch.

What We Do

for Charities

We offer charities and non-profit organisations an outsourced fundraising resource. Our team will work with you to device a longer-term fundraising strategy or to support a one-off campaign.



We will assess your fundraising strengths and weaknesses to produce a report on your current fundraising capacity and potential. 


We will work with you to produce a realistic and deliverable 2-5 year strategy to align your fundraising capacity, resources and requirements. 


Our experienced team can be contracted to write bids to grant giving organisations on your behalf.

Following an initial consultation we will propose how Art of Philanthropy can best support you and provide an estimation of our fees. 

If you would like to book a free one hour online introductory Fundraising: Possibilities & Pitfalls session please get in touch.
