When it comes to charity and philanthropy, everyone has different ideas about how they want to benefit others and help the causes they care about. Our advisers can help you to structure a plan that suits your needs and benefits the causes that matter most to you.
You might want to create your own charity or foundation, or donate to an existing charity throughout your life. Some people might wish to leave a charitable gift in their Will. Whatever you decide, we’ll make sure that your gift or charitable structure complies with legal regulations. Our team can also help you take advantage of any tax benefits which are available when donating to charity.
Contact us to discuss how you would like to give to charity. Call today on 0370 1500 100 or send us an email and we’ll call you back to set up a meeting.
