Quality Review of Beneficiaries
TGE partners’ long-standing experience as grant-makers and their intimate knowledge of the non-profit sector in their home country serve your generosity. Their involvement with your gift is your guarantee of the quality of the project and organisation you wish to support.

Tax Effective Cross-Border Giving
Your cross-border donation receives all applicable tax benefits in the country where you pay tax. Partner foundations’ combined expertise in domestic tax laws secures the most effective tax treatment for your gift in both your own country and the recipient’s.

Flexible and Effective Global Giving Management
TGE enables multinational corporations to freely organise their philanthropic giving to best suit their business strategy and community involvement policy, without having to master different tax laws and national regulations. Created opportunities include centralising all philanthropic giving out of most favourable tax jurisdiction and in accordance with corporate profits, or setting up joint corporate campaigns involving individual contributions by local branches and employees.
