Commenting on the award in Dubai, CEO John Canady said, “Donor-advised funds are increasingly being used by donors around the world, including here in the Middle East, because they are such efficient and flexible structures for philanthropic giving. We are delighted to be recognised for our work with donors and their advisors from the GCC region.”

NPT-UK is a UK charity that offers donor-advised funds and other philanthropic vehicles to facilitate strategic and tax-effective charitable giving.
