Philanthropic Advisory

The mission of the Via Clarita Endowment Fund is to support the development and cultivation of philanthropy and to provide independent philanthropic advice. We fulfill it mainly by organizing educational events and networking meetings for philanthropists, and in individual consultations, some of which we provide free of charge.

 

How to give meaning to your wealth

The motivations that lead donors to philanthropy change over the course of their lives and on the basis of various experiences. The most successful and sustainable philanthropic projects tend to focus on topics closest to the donor’s beliefs and values.

 

What is the essence of philanthropic counseling

We will help you find your philanthropic path, define your strategy and set up the individual projects you want to carry out. Together we will give your dreams and visions a specific form.

We will support you in considering the impact and effectiveness of your plans. We will look for ways to involve your family in philanthropic activities. We provide expert advice in the legal, tax and financial level of philanthropy and solve the administration associated with specific activities. If you are considering transferring your property to the next generation, they will be happy to help you, for example, in processing a will.
