Philanthropic foundation administration

Good governance and philanthropy go hand in hand and our highly skilled team can help with administration, compliance and other management tasks, alongside providing legal advice on the full spectrum of legal issues that arise for charitable foundations.

Once you have established a philanthropic foundation, you may want some support from experienced professionals in administering it.

Depending on your preferences and circumstances, we may be able to support your foundation with:

  • maintaining a registered office and public contact for the foundation
  • record-keeping and financial book-keeping
  • completion of regulatory filings
  • liaising with the foundation’s investment manager, accountants and auditors
  • governance changes
  • preparing board policies
  • addressing compliance with the Common Reporting Standard

In addition, our experienced charities & philanthropy team is able to advise on the full spectrum of legal issues that arise for foundations as they operate.
