Working with Professional Advisers

HIWCF is an ideal platform for local philanthropy, allowing donors to add structure to their giving in a tax efficient and effective manner, which would otherwise be complicated and costly to set up and administer. 

We offer a practical alternative to local charitable giving, ensuring it is stress-free and enjoyable for donors, whatever the amounts they wish to give.

Whether donors want to establish a named fund through a lifetime donation or a legacy in their will, or wish to reduce the burden of managing an existing charitable trust, we work closely with professional advisers, accountants, lawyers and wealth mangers and their clients to find the optimal solution.

Charity Commission Endorsement

15th July 2014 The Charity Commission acknowledges that Community Foundations have a reputation for the effective management of charitable funds in order to maximise their impact at local level. The Charity Commission and Community Foundations have worked closely in recent years to ensure that trustees seeking to revitalise moribund (dormant) or ineffective trust funds (which are looking for an effective way of carrying on their good work in future years) can release their funds to a Community Foundation as part of their appraisal of options. The Charity Commission welcomes and supports this initiative and encourages all charities to ask themselves whether they should work with Community Foundations as an alternative to continuing.
