Do you want to contribute to the public good? Philanthropy is a way for highly successful people to give something back. It can take many forms, such as a simple gift, an endowment, an earmarked donation or a sheltered fund. You can even set up a foundation. It is up to you to decide which vehicle makes the most sense for the impact you would like to have.
We help you to achieve peace of mind
Philanthropy is first and foremost an act of good will. To encourage such acts, the giver can enjoy certain financial and tax advantages. If you wish to engage in some form of philanthropy, we will work with you every step of the way, focusing particularly on the financial arrangement, how it is implemented and the impact of your investment over time.
One of our clients decided, for personal reasons, to create a foundation devoted to immuno-oncology research. Our specialists studied her project and informed her that many other foundations were already active in this field. Rather than assuming the costs of setting up a new foundation, they advised her to invest in an existing project. This would surely have a greater impact.
Entrepreneurship and philanthropy are closely linked. In both cases, you create something out of nothing and make it work.
Making a financial contribution is a laudable act. However, more and more philanthropists are getting actively involved in the various stages of their projects.
Use of resources
You should take a goal-oriented approach to philanthropy. That’s because every initiative requires a solid effort in allocating, organising and managing resources.
