We would like to thank all our customers for your warm response to our post about COVID-19 emergency-response funds.  An updated guide to the different funds and charities helping those worst affected by coronavirus has been compiled by Beacon Collaborative. It can be viewed here: Covid 19 Guide - 15th May

C. Hoare & Co.’s donor-advised fund, the Master Charitable Trust (MCT), allows donors to make grants across the full range of COVID-19-related causes.  MCT lifts the administrative burden of charitable giving and many of our donors have been able to provide early cornerstone funding to support new schemes. Indeed, as many grants have been made through MCT in the last 11 weeks as were made in the previous 12 months, raising more than £19m in donations since the start of the crisis.

If you would like to find out more about MCT and charitable giving, please contact your relationship manager who will be delighted to help.
