Connect to the causes you love

We gather the information you need to feel confident in your giving decisions. We can identify new recipients from our database and wide-reaching networks, evaluate their impact, or conduct additional research if there are new causes you wish to explore.

Weights

Lighten your load

Our team will take care of all the day-to-day administration of your giving. We’ll handle everything from grant-making and communication with recipients, to incoming gifts of cash, shares or property.

Discretion for you and your family

Give with confidence knowing that all recipients are verified against Stewardship’s eligibility criteria. When discretion is required we can also make gifts under a fund name or totally anonymously.

Simplify your own charitable foundation

If the administration and compliance for your existing family charitable foundation is becoming a burden, we can help you to transfer this to a Philanthropy Fund.

Investing your fund

Part of working together can involve the investment of your balance whilst it is in our care. We offer traditional financial investment options, and are willing to consider bespoke portfolios as well as social investment options for Kingdom impact.

Our Fees

Stewardship is a not-for-profit organisation and our costs are always kept as low as possible. We reinvest any extra income into supporting charitable causes such as church planting and training Christian workers. It’s a joy to partner with you in this Kingdom work.
