An increasing commitment to investment in society on the part of private individuals has been seen for a number of years. One way of providing capital for a specific, non-profit making purpose and obtaining tax relief is to establish a foundation. Capital is tied for a specified purpose, and the founder creates a widely recognised, lasting institution.

We provide advice for both private individuals and enterprises considering setting up a foundation or making an endowment with regard to the appropriate legal form and optimal use of tax concessions for the project.
