Creating a legacy as unique as you are! Philanthropy can be an integral part of that legacy journey.
Philanthropy or charitable giving is often important to our clients. Sometimes individuals or families will have a clear idea about what they want to achieve, others may require more guidance. Some will want a deep level of personal engagement with their chosen cause, while others may want a lighter touch.
We can support in setting up an appropriate charitable structure and for you to become more pro-active in terms of your charitable giving and to make an enduring impact on the community and future generations through strategic philanthropy.
Charitable trusts and foundations are typical vehicles structures to establish a philanthropic body are frequently used for philanthropic ventures, sometimes in association with family succession planning. The choice between charitable trusts and foundations tends to be influenced by the jurisdiction in which the family or their advisor operates, charitable trusts being more popular with those from common law jurisdictions and foundations more popular with those from civil law jurisdictions.
Working with your advisers we will seek to ensure that your charitable structure is accurately designed to make use of the generous tax treatment often made available to such structures.
