Our services


We partner with non-profit organisations of all kinds – from charities and international NGOs to health care centres and higher education institutions – to help them obtain the resources they need to meet their objectives. We do this by developing practical major gift strategies that bridge the gap between vision and action.


We support high-net-worth individuals and foundations, ensuring that they make the best choices for giving and achieve maximum impact.  From operational issues to strategic thinking, we can help you align the impact of your giving with the values and vision that underpin it.


Our research uncovers invaluable information about your organisation and its context in the wider philanthropic sector, so that you can take action that is based on evidence. Our research services cover two main areas: firstly we help you to understand your own donors better, and secondly we provide detailed profiling and positioning studies that help you to identify the best prospective donors and how to reach them.


Our training aims to spread knowledge of international best practices, and to inspire and empower individuals and organisations in the application of that knowledge. We adapt the format of our training to suit our clients’ needs, and can provide everything from group seminars to one-on-one mentoring and coaching, both online and in person.

“We wanted an organisation that could provide strategic advice and coaching to our team, and one with awareness of national and international funding sources.” Vicky Dodds, Director of Development, Murdoch University, Perth Australia


In a fundraising market that can be complex and difficult to navigate, Global Philanthropic provides philanthropists and charitable foundations with highly tailored advice on strategic giving.

We understand that directing your resources for optimum impact is not always an easy process. Our consultants begin by working closely with you to fully understand your values and interests, as well as focusing in on the specific areas where you would like to make a difference. Then, combining this understanding with a detailed knowledge of the philanthropic sector, our philanthropic experts design personalised giving strategies that maximise the impact of your giving to the causes closest to your heart.

We expect to work closely with your financial and legal advisors. Our activities are focused solely on philanthropic advice and guidance, and we do not provide financial, investment or legal advice. We work with the utmost discretion to respect and protect your privacy.
