“The team at the Foundation are a terrific resource for advisors and clients looking for advice on planned, tax efficient, impactful giving and access to match funding. They’re the best kept secret in Northern Ireland”

As a professional advisor, you will have clients who are passionate about an issue and want to give something back to their community. But they may not know where to start or how to give to make an impact in the most effective and tax efficient way. Perhaps they are already supporting a number of different charities, but have reached a point where they would like to take a more strategic approach, or to consider charities and activities closer to home.
A professional philanthropy service and resource for the client who wants to make an immediate philanthropic impact, to the couple hoping to leave a legacy or the family that have sold a business and want to give back to their community to the people who want a memorial fund in honour of a loved one.
