Helping charitable donors & charities to achieve their philanthropic goals

Our Mission

We help charitable donors - individuals, families, businesses and trusts 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 and implementing 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

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

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

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

We manage and sustain long term philanthropic relationships through regular reporting, evaluating outcomes and measuring impact.
