For individuals who are keen to support a charitable cause, it is essential to maximise the value and impact of any gift they make. We assist donors in exploring how to best achieve their charitable aims, whether during their lifetime or how to deal with arrangements after their death. In particular, we provide specialist advice on the following:

  • Making simple gifts to charity during a donor’s lifetime or through their will
  • Establishing lasting legacies, including the creation of grant-making charitable trusts
  • Managing and restructuring charitable trusts
  • Investing in social enterprise
  • Gift Aid and personal taxation
  • Tax efficient lifetime gifts of land, buildings or shares
  • Applying lower rates of Inheritance Tax for individuals donating over 10% of their estate to charity
