CAF shortlisted for WealthBriefing European Awards 2014

28 February 2014

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has been shortlisted for their philanthropy offering in this year’s WealthBriefing European Awards.

CAF is the only non-profit to be shortlisted for the award, which recognises companies, teams and individuals that have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2013’ in the wealth management, private banking and advisor communities.

The dedicated CAF Philanthropy Services team are candidates to win a prize for their ‘Philanthropy Offering’ and benefit from being part of a global non profit organisation that specialises in work in the charity sector. CAF Philanthropy Services work day in and day out with private clients as advisors on philanthropy. The depth of intelligence allows for a high level of innovation.

CAF are leaders at managing philanthropic capital and last year distributed over £428 million in 2012/13, and have close to £3bn assets under management.  Currently, CAF works with 280,000 donors and support 50,000 charities.

Commenting on the shortlisting, Lara Leigh-Wood, CAF Senior Private Client Development Manager said:

“We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award. CAF Philanthropy Services work hard to bring the intel of philanthropy to donors so as to make giving as effective as possible. To be recognised for the exceptional work it does is fantastic and a great help to all philanthropists trying their best to effect social change.

“Our status as a non-profit and our global operations, with expertise in over 90 countries, really mark us out against our competitors and we are very proud of the services we offer to individual donors at CAF. ”

Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner which will be held at The Guildhall, City of London on 15 May 2014.
