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.

The Foundry - Mission Related Investment

The social justice and human rights centre at The Foundry represents a landmark in terms of social impact investment in property. Together with a small group of charitable foundations, Ethical Property has successfully raised over £12m to create a centre which supports the social justice and human rights movement. 

Billionaire philanthropists: who are they and why do they give?

Self-made billionaires are more likely to pledge to donate a large portion of their wealth than those that have inherited their fortune, a new study has found. The study analysed letters written by billionaires who have signed The Giving Pledge - a commitment set up by Warren Buffett and Bill & Melinda Gates to encourage billionaires to donate at least half their wealth to charitable causes. It found that 87% of pledgers were self-made.

Learning by giving

Philanthropy is about giving resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact. This can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one's social capital. This can be a slightly daunting journey to embark on alone so here we provide links to a number of networks, clubs and groups for young professionals with philanthropics aims. These organisations  bring together likeminded individuals to have a greater impact.

Collaborating to go further

There is an African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” EVPA CEO Kurt Peleman shares his views on the importance of collaboration.
