Giving your time, your wealth or talent

  • Giving your talent or time

    Whether it’s mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs, sharing professional expertise with nonprofits, or using artistic talents to bring joy to communities, the act of giving one’s talent can create a profound impact that goes beyond monetary value.

    You could use your skills, knowledge and passion to support causes that you care about. We can help you plan how your assets can help free up your time to enable you to do that.

  • Giving your wealth

    Giving during your lifetime can be very rewarding, especially if you can measure or experience the impact for yourself.

    This could be regular gifting from income, which is distributed to a cause periodically in order for you or your family to retain an element of control, or a large one-off gift.

    Depending on the size of the gifts and the intended longevity, you may wish to consider setting up a vehicle for giving or gifting in your will.

    We can help you assess the impact of your giving through cashflow planning and wealth planning.



  • Furthers your status

    Philanthropy can have a social aspect, a way of networking and socialising. Like-minded people with like-minded values involved in fundraisers or projects that speak to those values bring about a social club of sorts, where not only philanthropy flourishes, but business deals can also take place.

  • Enrich your life

    Giving you a sense of purpose and fulfilment. Whether you are retired, considering retirement or still working, Giving your time, wealth or talent can benefit both the cause and you.

  • Bring your family together

    United under a common purpose. A shared passion to do good together that can inspire your family for generations.

  • Educate the next generation

    Family run projects can be an effective in educating younger generations in critical thinking and leadership, financial management or as a means of passing on some of your core values.

  • Have fun

    As one of our clients said: “why give only in your will? Where is the fun in that? I want to witness the effect that the project I am involved in has on other people.

Frequently asked questions

Nedbank Private Wealth

Why should I consider philanthropy?

Philanthropy can enrich your family’s financial position as well as your life.

Do you offer a philanthropic investment strategy?

We tend to find that our clients already have causes they wish to partner with, so we do not offer a philanthropic strategy with pre-selected causes. We can help you structure a strategy to benefit the cause (or causes) closest to your heart.

Frequently asked questions

Nedbank Private Wealth

Why not just gift the money instead of considering philanthropy?

Some reasons to consider philanthropy over a one-off payment to a cause or charity are:
  • You may wish to retain an element of control.
  • You may wish to have the ability to change which cause you are support in future.
  • You may wish to ensure that the money you give is achieving what you intended it to achieve, and to stagger your giving as a safety mechanism.
  • You may wish for your giving to continue for a long time.
  • Your giving might have additional objectives associated with it. For instance, you might wish to involve your children in philanthropy so that they learn the value of money, how to read financial reports, gain board experience or regularly interact with financial professionals.

Where do I start with philanthropy?
