Strategic Philanthropy

We draw on Iraj Ispahani’s longstanding experience of working with communities, charitable sector and non governmental organisations. This includes his work with Shakespeare’s Globe, UNICEF, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). He also serves on the Standard Chartered Foundation as an Independent Trustee.

These services are provided by Ispahani Advisory in conjunction with Philanthropy Company, led by our expert Caroline Underwood OBE, and range from advising on first steps in the philanthropic marketplace to establishing and managing global programmes to achieve specified objectives.

An increasingly important part of the role of a business owning or wealth owning family office is managing its philanthropic efforts. This may include agreeing objectives of all generations through family retreats and discussions, shaping the most effective giving structure such as the establishment of a foundation and advice on donating to charitable causes both in country and globally.
