Philanthropy

Philanthropy is a growing area of interest among the families we represent and we have been closely involved with the establishment and ongoing administration of a number of private structures with philanthropic objectives.

Active engagement in philanthropy can be a key component of establishing a powerful family legacy and the transition of wealth across the generations and we have been able to work with clients to shape and implement their philanthropic initiatives.

We have seen the concept of “next generation” philanthropic funds grow in popularity. The objective of these funds is for the next generation to take sole responsibility for a fund and pursue charitable activities based on their particular individual interests, personalities, skills and life experiences as part of a wider family governance exercise.

We are also well placed to assist global public charities with the provision of trustees and/or administration services to their international charitable foundations.
