Welcome to Perpetual’s new Philanthropy Toolkit. Everything you need to make your philanthropy easier, more enjoyable and more effective.
Philanthropy changes the world. For the giver, it can be a tremendous source of satisfaction. But it can also be frustrating - even for the most experienced philanthropists.
It’s complicated – but important – and sometimes it feels like there are just too many questions:
- What structure should I use?
- Am I giving in the most effective way?
- Can I get my family involved?
- Are the NFPs I support making a real impact on the causes I care about?
There’s never been one place you could go to answer all those questions. Until now.
Perpetual's new Philanthropy Toolkit, developed and tested by Stanford University’s Centre for Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) is the philanthropy how-to guide you've been looking for.
It's interactive and comprehensive and will make your philanthropy more enjoyable - and more effective.
What it covers:
You’ll give more – and more effectively - if your philanthropy aligns with how you see the world. The Philanthropy Toolkit helps you clarify the issues that matter most to you so you can direct your giving effectively.
The Philanthropy Toolkit helps you build a framework that guides how much you give and when. The result – giving that really works.
The toolkit has a variety of exercises you can do with your family to capture their ideas and contribution, maximise your giving and pass on your values.
The right giving vehicle will make your giving more tax-effective, easier-to-manage and more enduring. The Philanthropy Toolkit helps you make the right choices.
Your philanthropy is more powerful if you share the experience, learn from others and combine your giving. The Philanthropy Toolkit shows you how to do it.
There’s more than one way to give. Perpetual’s Philanthropy Toolkit helps you maximise the impact of your time, talent and treasure.
