How do you amplify your impact? Successful philanthropists leverage their profile to shine an important light on the worthy causes they support, and leverage their commitment to charity to build new relationships and, ultimately, create goodwill amongst stakeholders. We have worked with some of the world’s most significant philanthropists, helping them give careful, subtle, and dignified visibility to their charitable activity as well as their underlying mission.
Our Philanthropists & Donors team are strategic, discreet, and thoughtful. We have decades of experience balancing the need to give understated visibility to our clients’ impact while ensuring their privacy is protected at all times. The team are sensitive, media-savvy, and principled.

We are able to support philanthropists through the full giving lifecycle, including identifying projects that align with a family’s objectives, taking control of a foundation’s digital presence, and announcing new gifts to the media.
Our Philanthropists & Donors team acts for long-standing philanthropists, as well as individuals who are now only taking their first steps. Our key services include:
- Strategic communications advice on personal positioning
- Assistance with setting your philanthropy strategy
- Creating websites for charitable trusts and foundations
- Building brands for charitable trusts and foundations
- Finding the language to articulate your mission, purpose, and narrative
- Taking control of your personal digital profile, and ensuring your digital profile captures your impact
- Securing positive, selective coverage of your philanthropic activity
- Announcing new charitable gifts, and coordinating all press engagement
- Raising the profile of your impactful work amongst the right audiences
- Putting in place measures to protect your privacy
The challenges and opportunities that philanthropists and donors face are unique. Every situation requires a bespoke solution, and our experienced team will devise a personalised plan of action.
Our Philanthropists & Donors team has supported a wide variety of clients, including individuals involved in direct giving, impact investment, and other forms of impactful activity. Our recent highlights include:
- Designing and launching a website for a healthcare-focused private foundation (spending in excess of £1.5 million), with a view to giving selective online visibility to the work of the underlying philanthropist.
- Acting as the single media point of contact for a significant philanthropist (£3 billion net worth), with a view to staying abreast of media coverage and protecting their reputation at all points.
- Setting the communications strategy for a property developer ($80 million of real estate assets), with a view to highlighting the impactful community work undertaken by the owners amongst very specific decision-makers.
- Announcing a landmark gift for a family to a higher education institution (£200,000), with a view to securing positive coverage that both highlighted their personal philanthropic mission and captured the positive work of the university project itself.
- Responding to hostile media inquiries on behalf of a noted philanthropic family. The inquiries concerned false allegations that the family was trying to repair their reputation through philanthropic giving.
In all cases our work is carried out on a confidential and discreet basis, protecting our client and their interests at all times.
