Would you like to contribute to a better world, on your own, with your family or others?
Philanthropy is the liberty to choose the cause, or causes, that are dear to you, such as securing the future of an art collection, supporting scientific research, or helping the homeless. There are as many wonderful projects as there are philanthropists.
Whether you wish to do something close to home or internationally, our Centre for Philanthropy will develop a made-to-measure solution together with you, one that is adapted to meet your wishes, gives meaning to your engagement and ensures that it has an impact. We put our many years of experience, our expertise and our extensive network at your disposal.
