On the surface Duane Jackson’s success story could sound pretty run of the mill; creating a software company, growing the business into a sector leader and eventually selling it off for a healthy profit, then ploughing some of the proceeds into charities and social enterprises.

We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.
