The Talent Fund is a new charity set up to support individuals primarily in entertainment, sport and the creative industries who wish to develop their philanthropy. The Talent Fund researches and advises on causes, issues and beneficiary charities. It guides its donors’ decisions and ensures first class governance of the process of fund dispersal.
Donating strategically to charity is a difficult thing. Getting decisions right about who, where and why is not easy. Benefitting from expert, independent, top notch advice is important. The Talent Fund helps individuals support charitable projects and organisations they care about with as much or as little involvement as they want, while managing risk, reputation and the costs of doing this well.
The Talent Fund calls on a wide network of professionals who lend their knowledge, skills and experiences to help ensure its processes, advice and information is first class. Its Trustees have over 100 years of experience between them.
The Talent Fund works with donors who it finds through mainly networking and word of mouth. It disburses grants in accordance with its donors’ wishes. It is administratively lean and does not accept unsolicited applications for support.
