Effective philanthropy for private individuals, companies, and foundations

“LGT Venture Philanthropy successfully worked with us to further the development of our philanthropy project with humor, empathy, experience and expertise." - a LGT Venture Philanthropy Advisory client

Our advisory is directed towards diverse target groups. Private individuals, family offices, foundations and companies all have the need to conduct their philanthropic giving sensibly, strategically, and effectively. The length of time you have been involved in philanthropy makes little difference to this need.

  • Are you new to the world of philanthropy?
  • Would you like to realign or optimize your current philanthropic engagement?
  • Are you considering ways to integrate your family or children into your philanthropic work?
  • As a public person or foundation, do you receive many petitions for donations? Would you like to set out a final strategy for selecting causes and giving support in a more targeted way?
  • Do you feel uncertain when it comes to judging whether a social organization works efficiently?  
  • Would you like your foundation to become active in other regions, but lack the local network or on-site team?
  • Would you like to develop your company’s social engagement in a way that also makes strategic sense?

Whatever stage you are at – please contact us for an initial conversation.
