Working for many years in humanitarian emergencies, we became increasingly aware of private donors’ willingness to make a positive contribution to humanitarian and development aid. Philanthropy, however, is more than money transfer to be successful: it is a difficult process that includes the building of meaningful relationships and partnerships, the definition of a clear and sustainable long-term strategy, the evaluation and assessment of innovative, effective, and beneficiary-oriented projects.
Understanding the necessity to fill in the gap between philanthropic aspirations and best practices, we created Philanthropy Advisors, building on the expertise of an experienced and complimentary team, qualified in humanitarian emergency response practices, field monitoring and evaluations, wealth management, development policy analysis, strategy, and communications.
Ethics and human centred approaches: By definition, philanthropy needs to respect human dignity and strive to maximise the positive impact on the lives of the beneficiaries, at PA we commit to ensuring human centric approaches and a high standard of ethics across everything we do
Quality standards and excellence: Providing an exceptional quality of strategic, technical and operational advisory to our clients. Achieving excellence is a mark of respect to donors, investors, partners and the communities we serve
Adaptability and innovation: We are committed to utilising industry standard best practices when it makes sense, but to thinking outside the box, pushing ourselves and our clients, to be innovative, where it makes sense
Independence: We remain independent, to ensure that our actions are effective and focused on improving the well-being of the beneficiaries
Responsible Action: Our actions are carried out with respect to the environment and the local social and cultural contexts in which we operate
