Philanthropy Advisory

Make a positive contribution

Philanthropy advisory An enduring commitment to the greater good

Our philanthropy advisory offering is inspired by the philanthropic giving of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein and the LGT Guide to Strategic Philanthropy. We advise, support and connect wealthy individuals and families who want to make our planet a better place for all.


Our advice is geared to both seasoned philanthropists and to new clients who are eager to put their assets to work for the benefit of society and the environment. We explore what is most important to you and then develop an effective strategy for your future giving. We explain the levers you can use to maximize your impact.


We share our knowledge and give clients the insights and pointers they need to take their philanthropy to the next level. This can include holding exclusive events or arranging visits to projects. We also have a worldwide network of philanthropists, which helps like-minded individuals share and learn from each other’s experiences.


We support you from the drawing board right through to implementation. The services we provide range from evaluating specific solutions for structuring your donations to selecting the best. We can also put you in touch with experts at LGT and beyond. Certain co-financing opportunities also exist with LGT Venture Philanthropy for a number of exciting projects.

As a family, we have been fortunate to partner with other philanthropists and to have a dedicated team of experts to help us along the way.

LGT Guide to Strategic Philanthropy Doing good, well

The LGT Guide to Strategic Philanthropy, which we wrote in conjunction with Philanthropy Insight, is one of the cornerstones of philanthropy advisory at LGT. It draws on the experience of philanthropic leaders and families, and on the collaboration between nonprofits, social enterprises, communities, multilateral organizations and governments from 70 countries. Our guide will support you on your philanthropic journey - whether you are just starting out, are involving new family members or are looking for ways to have an even bigger impact. It also contains a wealth of personal insights and experiences shared by 30 leading philanthropists from around the world.
