I work with individuals, families, foundations, grant-makers and companies.

Whether you are starting out, looking to develop your philanthropic practice, or need some additional capacity, my service will help you:

  • Identify your values, interests and intentions

  • Understand the context and needs of the individuals and organisations you seek to support

  • Explore your options for making a difference

  • Develop your giving strategy

  • Select and assess organisations and projects

  • Design and deliver grant processes

  • Monitor your impact

I work alongside your existing team of advisors – adding my specialist knowledge of funding social good to their advice on giving vehicles and financial planning.


“Thank you for your understanding, experience and sound advice at this critical moment. The framework you devised allowed us to reflect on what type of projects we have been funding and the size and duration of grants, and stimulated us to focus on how we might fund in the future.”

Caroline Marks, Chair, The AIM Foundation


“Emma produced an excellent report for us, to help us decide on our priorities for our UK programme. She facilitated conversations, undertook some rigorous research and responded well to our particular needs. She has a great deal of knowledge about philanthropy and social needs in the UK - and an approach to consultancy which helped challenge and ultimately support both our process and our proposed priorities.”

Jonathan Potter, QCUK
