Charity & Philanthropy

The focus on philanthropy and charitable giving is more relevant than ever as future generations look to support causes during their lifetime, as opposed to more traditional philanthropy which would have been a donation as part of a will or legacy.

Through a charitable trust or foundation, an individual or family can support these intentions.  Both structures have the ability to allow the family to settle assets for the sole benefit of a charity through their lifetime and beyond.  This can be managed as part of the wider wealth structure of a family's assets.

Guernsey is the perfect jurisdiction to establish a philanthropic structure, with well established trust and foundation laws.
