Philanthropy

We all live in extraordinary times. Wealth has been created in virtually every corner of the globe, but needs also abound at every turn.

Those who have achieved extraordinary wealth have done so by confronting problems and crafting solutions. However, with many there still exists a burning desire to make a difference and do something.

Activ8 have confronted this dilemma and have crafted a solution – An Holistic Philanthropic Service for Southern Africa – they are determined to use their skill set and expertise to advise and practically assist people and organizations who have philanthropic aspirations with the continent of Africa as a destination. This would include South African citizens, corporates and PBO’s as well as foreign donor organizations and individuals who wish to operate in South Africa.

In the old era of passive bequests, the drawing up of a will was often the only requirement, and a law firm normally sufficed. The modern-day philanthropist wishes to create a living legacy over which they can contribute during their lifetime. To the high net worth individual creating a Charitable Foundation/Trust structure gives tax structuring opportunities that can result in significant savings of income tax, CGT, estate duty and/or donations tax.

Activ8 offers an A – Z charitable giving service that covers the full ambit of trust, tax, legal, investment, financial and regulatory advice needed to set up, maintain and manage such structures.
