Who we are

The Charity Service was founded in 1990 and has been actively promoting and supporting philanthropy for over three decades. Our vision is a world in which philanthropy is commonplace, generous and kind.


We provide philanthropy services to high-net-worth individuals. Our services, which include Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) and philanthropy advice, help major donors to successfully manage their charitable giving.


The role

‚ÄčThe Charity Service is looking for a new Chair of Trustees to lead the organisation through at least the next three years, working closely with other Trustees and the Head of Philanthropy Services to grow charitable giving by major donors in the north of England.

Although we are a small charity, we have ambitious plans. We believe there is an opportunity to create a service for philanthropists that looks and feels different to what is offered by more corporate providers based in London.

The Chair of Trustees will play a critical role in achieving our ambitions. As well as providing leadership on governance, the Chair will take an active ambassadorial role, thereby providing plentiful opportunities to meet new people and build relationships.
