Professional Advisers

As a professional adviser you will have clients who care about and want to give something back to their community but may not know where to start. They are probably already supporting a number of different charities but may have reached the point of wanting to take a more strategic approach or to consider charities and activities closer to home.

To have an initial discussion about the service we offer, please contact Perry Norton, Head of Development, on 01245 355947.

Giving Made Easy

ECF can make it easier for your clients to give both locally and effectively as we offer a simple, cost effective, and tax efficient solution, whilst removing the burden of administration that is usually associated with establishing a charitable trust. From the client who wants to make an immediate philanthropic impact, to the couple hoping to leave a legacy, to the family who want to establish a memorial fund in honour of a loved one, we can help you find the best solution.

Confidence in ECF

We are part of the national and international community foundation movement and offer the expertise to help your clients fulfil their philanthropic ambitions.
