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

Sir Roger Gifford

Head, SEB UK

"Philanthropy is important to London because in a society which tries to balance competitive tax rates with social benefit, philanthropy is essential – filling in where the government can’t, on the one hand, around desirable health and education needs and, on the other, investing in music and the arts. Both are for the overall health and benefit of society."
