Our Services

Our passion for philanthropy is mirrored by our clients and in 2018 we were proud to launch JM Philanthropy, a specialised service for those looking to simplify and maximise their philanthropy.


At JM Philanthropy we will listen to you to understand your needs and aspirations. We will customise solutions for you which are completely bespoke. You have flexibility in choosing the combination of services whether it be a full service offering or components depending on how involved you choose to be.


The team at JM Philanthropy have designed Grant Toolbox which is a new, low-cost, cloud-based grant management tool for Foundations.  Grant Toolbox has been created to minimise the time and resources required to run your philanthropy operation, with a best-practice grant management solution at your fingertips.

What we can do for you

Every person has a bucket list of things they want to get to. Relationships, activities or personal pursuits, we know that it is different for everybody and philanthropy is no exception. You may love engaging with the people and communities you are supporting, or perhaps the passion is in brokering deals and connections between others. We work closely with you, to ensure you have the time needed to focus on what is most fulfilling for you.

How we do it

We ensure you only have to focus on what excites you by providing access to the best tools of the trade which are cost effective and simple to use along with trusted, strategic advice. Our bespoke offering provides you with a dedicated CEO, CFO, administration and mentoring support and is tailored to suit your needs. We believe in quality service, responsive service and above all else, trust.
