Meet the team
As Baillie Gifford’s Philanthropy Team, we manage the partnership’s charitable giving. We work with a committee of staff subgroups spanning arts, community, grassroots sports, health and education, international, natural environment and social causes.
Most of our philanthropy is focused on charities working in Scotland, where we are headquartered. But we are a global company and we have increased our giving overseas. Our international offices in Amsterdam, Dublin, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Krakow, New York, Shanghai, Toronto and Zurich all support local causes chosen by their staff.
We strive to be open, honest, approachable and transparent, providing help where it is needed the most.
Propose your charity for support
We are happy to hear from charities looking for support, so please get in touch if your organisation is making a difference and you think Baillie Gifford could help.
