Stevenage Community Trust
Stewardship is a leading UK charity Donor Advised Fund promoting generous and tax-effective giving. Its award-winning Philanthropy Services team will partner with you to provide a personalised service that frees you from the complexities of making larger gifts so you can focus on supporting the causes you are passionate about. Services include social impact investing, legacy and estate giving, international grant making, research services and Stewardship’s innovative Donor Advisory Board, which uses the board structure to enable input from family, friends and advisers without the legal burden of charity trusteeship.
Stewardship was founded over a century ago by a small group of Christians who partnered to release generous gifts and financial support to Christian ministries. Today, we help over 30,000 people experience the joy of being generous stewards, giving more than £100 million each year to over 6,000 charities, 4,000 churches and 2,300 Christian workers.
Stone King LLP
Stonewall is here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone. We believe we're stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain - in some of our greatest institutions - so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. Stonewall works with individuals through a series personal and professional development programmes that enable people to connect with and influence others to challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. Through our Diversity Champions, we work with over 750 members across the public, private and third sectors to help them create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce. We campaign, lobby and fundraise to enable LGBT people to be themselves, whoever and wherever they are.

ThoughtfulPhilanthropy offers personalized, professional research to inform your charitable giving.
Thoughtful Philanthropy’s Director, Lauren Janus, works with individuals and couples to understand their passions and priorities for giving to charity. Using her background in the charity sector combined with an MBA, Lauren creates giving reports that help her clients understand the issues behind the causes they care about, and suggests impactful ways to donate.
From climate change to AIDS in Africa, Lauren will map out the players and highlight the strategies organizations are following to solve the issue you care about. She’ll create an accessible, personalized report for you to take away and consider before deciding which group/s you will give to.
If you are thinking about an issue or cause you’d like to support–whether it’s the obesity epidemic or the endangered sand cat–but want to be really thoughtful in how you give your money away, please get in touch about becoming a client. I’d love to hear what issues you care about.
