In Australia, structured giving is an ecosystem of NPOs, charitable funds and foundations, all working to create a better future. At Elston we love being part of this community. We help philanthropists to give to causes that are close to their heart. And we give NFPs the support and guidance they need to grow and thrive as they continue to strive forward.
Philanthropy can be enormously satisfying, especially when it brings generations together to share in a common
purpose. Over the years we’ve enjoyed seeing the transformation in families as the discussions have turned from retirement plans and business succession to an exploration of values.
There is a genuine joy in discovering a new purpose and sharing that with the people you love. We have been fortunate to be a part of those journeys.
“Elston helps us to optimise our investment opportunities to ensure the Foundation can keep giving into the future”Brett O'Brien Director of the James Frizelle Charitable Foundation
We believe that giving should be simple, effective and rewarding. That’s why we created the Elston Giving Foundation. The Foundation is a public ancillary fund that makes it easy for you to establish a named sub fund to support your philanthropic strategy. You receive an immediate tax deduction for the money you donate into the fund, and you have the flexibility to distribute the funds to charity over time. Read our brochure to learn more.
The role of a Not For Profit organisation is as rewarding as it is challenging. You have a mission and a passion to create positive change in the world. But you also carry heavy responsibilities. As a committed investment partner for Not-for-Profit organisations, we understand the problems board members and trustees face. We can assist with everything from governance frameworks through to sophisticated portfolio management.
Susan Chenoweth is one of Australia’s most accomplished not-for-profit leaders. Prior to joining Elston, she held philanthropy roles at Mutual Trust, Australian Philanthropic Services and University of Queensland. By bringing this experience and her passion for giving to Elston, Susan has been able to ensure that our philanthropic and NFP services keep growing and improving so you can do more.
At Elston we believe in a better future for our people, for our clients and for the communities where we work. That’s why giving is part of our culture.
We have our own giving committee seeking our good causes and making grants each year. We’re always jumping into fun runs and volunteer work. And we love bringing charities and philanthropists together.
