We help charities, endowment funds and other charitable organisations free up as much time and funds for their (social) missions. We do this by supporting them in all matters related to governance, management, regulatory frameworks, asset management and accounting. Coordinated interaction between these elements of our services brings structure and stability to your organisation.
The interplay of all these elements brings structure and peace of mind to your organization. In this way, we assist in managing your responsibility and liability.
We harbour all the necessary expertise to support you, including ‘MyOrchestra’ our trusted online platform that offers you 24/7 insights and assurance. Our fee is a simple, pre-agreed, fixed annual fee, therefore we also contribute to your mission by the cost savings we achieve.
This is how we ‘unburden’ charitable organisations: we remove the hassle, while you stay in control and focus on the good cause!
Charities in the broadest sense of the word have in recent years come under ever-increasing public scrutiny. Various stakeholders and regulatory bodies demand insight, oversight, transparency from your organisation, leading to ever-longer compliance check lists. This puts considerable pressure on voluntary boards and the organisations themselves; not being on top of one’s own affairs, can cause significant reputational damage. You thus find yourself spending a disproportionate amount of time and resources tackling these hurdles and jumping through hoops. But you probably didn’t raise your hand to become a board member for box ticking duties only; you want to let your mission thrive. Luckily good advice and support doesn’t always come at high cost.
The specialist: only (charitable) foundations
Transparancy: one fixed, annual fee
Peace of mind: you are always compliant and in control
One-stop-shop: all expertise under one roof
Oversight: 24/7 online access to your own data
