We always try to meet donors wherever they are in their philanthropic journey,’ says John Canady, CEO of the National Philanthropic Trust UK (NPT-UK). ‘DAFs are an increasingly popular alternative to setting up a foundation,’ he notes, thanks to their convenience and flexibility. Focusing on UK and international clients based in London, NPT-UK handles the compliance, due diligence and administration required to set up a DAF within just 48 hours with ‘as little as £20,000’ in funds, says Canady. ‘Some donors want to give anonymously, which is possible with a DAF.’ He is impressed by his client base, who are ‘passionate about finding ways to make the world a better place… we need that right now’.
