UBS Philanthropy

To maximize your impact, locally, nationally and globally.

We are dedicated to finding innovative ways to tackle some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems. Building on our 20-year track record and applying an investment-based approach, our global team makes it simpler for you and your family to manage your philanthropy and maximize your impact.

Together we can make a difference – with your passion and our expertise.

Developed over more than two decades, our platform provides access to the guidance and resources to manage your giving in the most efficient way while ensuring that it is doing the most good. It is based on three core pillars: comprehensive advice, shared insights and execution services.

What does effective philanthropy look like?

We provide holistic advice to clients and their families, whatever their philanthropic goals. So whether you are considering establishing your first charitable fund or wanting to ensure your current portfolio is tax efficient, our team of experts is ready to help.

Where can I see programs in action?

Make the best-informed decisions about your philanthropy. We connect people and insight through our global network – anything from a report on the latest charitable giving tax rules to a networking event with fellow philanthropists.

Which programs have the most promising solutions?

We offer a number of execution services, giving you flexible options on how you manage your philanthropic investments. They include in-house structures which make it easier and more cost-effective to put your strategy into practice.
