Philanthropy, It's a Personal Affair

Nathalie Sauvanet

There is no one-size-fits-all in philanthropy: adapt your philanthropy to fit you

Our world is fast-changing and dynamic but faces a number of challenges. Philanthropy is just one way in which individuals hope to change our world for the better.

Whilst these challenges may appear overwhelming, with careful thought and structured advice, you can build your philanthropy to fit your values as well as your means. Your resources – time, skills and funds – will indeed determine the most suitable philanthropic approach or action for you.

Some may choose lighter involvement, placing their trust in existing organisations through simple donations, whereas others may look to build a philanthropic project from scratch and manage it full time. There are different degrees of personal commitment and different ways to get involved. It is important to choose a path based on your capacity.

Our individual philanthropy team is highly experienced in helping individuals adapt their philanthropy to fit their aspirations and their means.
