WORKING WITH PROFESSONAL ADVISERS
HIWCF work closely with accountants, lawyers, wealth managers and professional advisers whose clients are interested in:
- Leaving a legacy or gift in their will
- Transferring the burden of running a charitable trust
- Setting up a Named Fund
- Setting up an "in memoriam" fund
HIWCF offers similar support to corporate donors of all sizes from Ford Motor Company to Red Funnel Ferries, who have an interest in corporate giving back to their local community putting their corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies into practice. Increasingly employers, investors, key suppliers and stakeholders want to see companies putting something back into the local community.
HIWCF have in-depth experience of merging with, or taking over the management of existing charitable trusts which may be ineffective or in difficulty identifying suitable beneficiaries or attracting new trustees whilst maintaining the original name and charitable objects of the settlor. We provide a range of services from grant-making to all legal, Charity Commission and accounting responsibilities, with the original trustees remaining involved as much or as little as they wish.
