Philanthropy plays a vital role in our society. As well as providing much needed funds to charities and not-for profit organisations, it enables individuals and families to have a values-based, positive impact on issues that matter to them - leaving behind a lasting legacy.

It's [about] really trying to help clients work out what they want to focus on and why. There's a lot of assessment around who are the best charities to partner with to make donations that can make a meaningful difference.”
