Swedbank is offering its Private Banking clients a philanthropic consultation service.
As per all other Private Banking services, our philanthropic consultations are aimed at you personally. Whether you want to make a specific donation or start your own charity, our professional teams are here to provide you with the optimal solutions.
The philanthropic service has three levels:
- Setting up a charity and managing its assets
- The Estonian Foundation of Musical Instruments
- The ‘I Love to Help’ donations site
Establishing your own foundation, NPO or charity
To bring about positive change in society, you need motivation, drive, a well-considered plan of action and sufficient resources. All of this might seem like a huge challenge at first, but the experience of philanthropists to date shows that nothing is impossible.
If you want to contribute to the development of a specific field but no such initiative exists in Estonia, we can help you set up a foundation, non-profit organization or charity. One of the advantages of establishing your own organization is that you can be directly involved in its management and in making decisions on the direction it takes. Our professional Private Banking team will be happy to take care of the future fund management of your organization, too - giving it their full dedication without any management fees. You can also consult our partners, if needed, on taxation and legal matters.
Helping us maintain the quality of the charity service is Swedbank’s partner of many years, the Good Deed Foundation.
Good Deed Foundation
Heateo Sihtasutus or the Good Deed Foundation is an organization with expertise in strategic charity work.
The foundation and its volunteers, partners and supporters focus on supporting new and existing solutions that are shown to work and on improving the capacity of organizations that bring about change in society. With their competent assistance we have launched new social undertakings and mediated support for innovative and sustainable initiatives.
Estonian Musical Instrument Foundation to support development of young talented musicians.
The Estonian Musical Instrument Foundation was created on 7 December 2015. Swedbank is one of the founders of this organisation, along with the Estonian National Culture Foundation and Paavo Järvi.
The new foundation was established to purchase valuable musical instruments and hand them over for use to talented musicians in order to facilitate their international success.
The foundation will be buying 1-4 musical instruments annually in cooperation with companies and donors, providing these instruments to chosen musicians for a period of up to 5 years. The Estonian Musical Instrument Foundation is primarily interested in string instruments produced in the 18th-20th centuries and priced at 50,000 euros and more.
The foundation makes its musical instrument purchasing decisions based on the assessments carried out by a body of experts that includes foreign specialists.
This is a noble investment that supports Estonian culture, our youth in general and young musicians in particular.
Donation environment "I Love to Help“
The donation environment "I Love to Help" came alive in 2008. Established in cooperation of the Good Deed Foundation and Swedbank, it has now grown into the biggest online tool in Estonia to intermediate donations.
The aim of the donation environment is to promote Estonian culture of charity - by bringing together the reliable and influential charity organizations in Estonia, giving them the opportunity to present their activities and to collect donations without a service fee.
By moving its home from it original location on Swedbank's webpage to www.armastanaidata.ee, it is even more spacious and more comfortable meeting place today both for the organizations and the donors.
Nearly 40 organizations are represented in this reformed donation environment, divided into four different activities:
- children and families
- health and coping
- animals and conserving the nature
- education and equal opportunities
Discover the new environment and support reliable and influential organizations!
