We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.

City Philanthropy

A Wealth of Opportunity

Peter King

Partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP

"The reputation of the City of London rests on its unique culture, in which people from all around the world can deal with each other in an atmosphere of trust and confidence. For me, philanthropy is key to the culture of the City: it is through involvement with those less fortunate than we are that we develop an appreciation of the values that should inform our work in commerce and finance. As a City Philanthropy Ambassador, I am keen that these values are not seen as an irrelevant tradition but as part of the culture which will enable the City to retain its place as the leading international financial centre."
