Event Details

American expats in the UK face many obstacles to successfully growing their wealth. These cross-border financial planning issues are complex, but do not have to be overwhelming. One particularly challenging issue is tax efficient charitable giving.

This webinar will focus on helping individuals (and their advisors) with a US/UK connection to navigate charitable giving and understand the benefits of giving through a dual qualified vehicle. The benefits include dual tax deductions, ability to make charitable gifts to nonprofits around the world, and ability to invest the funds to enable growth of philanthropic capital. Additionally, we will share opportunities available for US individuals wishing to support overseas charities effectively and the associated tax benefits.


  • Donor Advised Funds: A General Overview
  • Charitable Giving in the UK – Gift Aid
  • CADF – a dual-qualified DAF setup specifically for US/UK taxpayers
    • How It Works
    • Case Studies/Examples
  • Integrating Charitable Giving into a U.S./UK financial plan



Please contact us with any questions about joining the webinar. If you are unable to attend Tuesday, September 20th, still register and we will send a replay of the presentation.
