The Private Client team at BDO works both in the UK and internationally, with over 50 Partners and Directors and over 300 full-time professionals. Our client base ranges from high and ultra-high net worth individuals to FTSE 100 companies and international groups. We deliver a comprehensive set of services including asset structuring, succession planning, gifting and will planning, trust services, tax compliance, risk management, family business advisory and family office services.
We see the importance and impact of Philanthropy through advising our clients on a daily basis. COVID-19 has presented society with challenges none of us could have prepared for. No matter how or what you have given in the past now may be the time for us all to ‘rethink’ our strategy, and the level of our engagement and contributions. Everyone’s reasons for giving are personal, and we seek to advise clients on the benefits of giving that are unique to them and their family, and how to inspire future generations to get involved with family philanthropy.

Through a combination of rigorous research, executive education and the convening of diverse voices, the Centre aims to become the leading hub of actionable knowledge to catalyse greater philanthropic impact from the world’s fastest growing regions.
Chapel & York
Founded in 1997, Chapel & York has always specialised in international fundraising and activities for organisations. We have worked with nearly 500 organisations over the years
Uniquely, in countries where having a local organisation through which donors can tax-effectively make gifts, we both set up and manage dedicated legal entities and have our own Chapel & York organisations. We can thus ensure the right answer for our clients’ needs.
Chapel & York has six C&Y charitable organisations around the world – the US, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland and The Netherlands – which facilitate tax-effective international giving plus provide a platform through which organisations can fundraise without needing to establish their own dedicated entities.
These Chapel & York Foundations provide training and advice about fundraising internationally for their local and regional stakeholders. They also provide benefits to American donors – the US and UK entities are linked as are the Hong Kong and US entities so that American taxpayers can have a UK or HK tax benefit plus a US tax-deduction.
Chapel & York also provides philanthropic advice and guidance to donors who want to establish a philanthropic giving programme
2020 sees a major milestone for Chapel & York in its work for clients with the creation of a dedicated bespoke International Fundraising Department to ensure clients’ international fundraising activities are as successful as possible.
Chapel & York has offices in Mayfair London, New York, New Orleans, Geneva, Amsterdam and Hong Kong, and staff worldwide.
Clients are at the centre of everything we do. We are committed to making every interaction meaningful and productive, and this is the case for all of our institutional, entrepreneurial and high-net-worth clients across the globe. We have helped families to take care of their wealth, entrepreneurs to succeed, multinational companies to operate and transact, and funds to maximise their returns.
We are on a mission to transform the way SMEs and charities do business, moving us to a sustainable economy.
We believe collaboration between the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors is essential to achieve environmental balance, social justice, and economic prosperity across the globe. We support organisations who want to work in partnership, collaborate to achieve change, and actively involve those most affected, in decision making.
We know that businesses and charities who embrace sustainable development today, are the ones who thrive financially, socially and reputationally, tomorrow and into the future.
SDG Changemakers run workshops and partner with organisations on projects to show them how to embed, measure and communicate social and environmental value. We use the UN's universal call to action, the 17 Sustainable Development Goalds (SDG), as our framework linking them back to local and nationally led initiatives such as the TOMs, SBTi, GRI, ISO, PRI, SASB and the United Nations Global Compact.
We believe that every organisation should have access to effective, affordable and focused support to help them achieve their vision. As part of our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, we provide cost-effective solutions to transform, ignite and empower like-minded change-makers.
We also pledge to return at least 1% of our profits to support organisations who are beacons of these values and where our support can make a difference.
By leading with a sustainable purpose, SDG Changemakers is committed to responsible leadership, community-led innovation and financial, social and environmental sustainability.
