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.
Centre for Strategic Philanthropy
The Centre for Strategic Philanthropy (CSP) within the University of Cambridge Judge Business School is dedicated to enhancing the impact of strategic philanthropy both within and from global growth markets. 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.
We have clients across six continents who are serviced by dedicated teams with the experience and specialist qualifications to look after their bespoke needs. Be that fintech entrepreneurs or globally mobile sports professionals, family offices or lottery winners, landed estates or multi-generational family businesses.
We don’t have relationship managers, clients have direct, day-to-day, access to those making decisions on their behalf. We have been looking after a significant proportion of clients for several decades, with our longest standing client, now comprising the fifth and sixth generation having appointed us in 1917. Relationships like this cannot be done at arms’ length.
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.
ThoughtfulPhilanthropy offers personalized, professional research to inform your charitable giving.
Thoughtful Philanthropy’s Director, Lauren Janus, works with individuals and couples to understand their passions and priorities for giving to charity. Using her background in the charity sector combined with an MBA, Lauren creates giving reports that help her clients understand the issues behind the causes they care about, and suggests impactful ways to donate.
From climate change to AIDS in Africa, Lauren will map out the players and highlight the strategies organizations are following to solve the issue you care about. She’ll create an accessible, personalized report for you to take away and consider before deciding which group/s you will give to.
If you are thinking about an issue or cause you’d like to support–whether it’s the obesity epidemic or the endangered sand cat–but want to be really thoughtful in how you give your money away, please get in touch about becoming a client. I’d love to hear what issues you care about.
