Launched in 2016, GivingSimple aims to develop and grow philanthropy by providing a simple and cost-effective solution for individuals, families, and businesses, that enables patrons to support the communities, charities, and causes that are close to their own heart.
GivingSimple operates like the patron’s own foundation, ensuring full control of philanthropic strategy, structure, and ultimately where their donations are granted. However, without the need to establish their own trust, nor deal with any of the administration or compliance costs of running their own foundation. This allows the patron to connect their philanthropic efforts in a more effective and targeted manner.
GivingSimple has been specifically designed for:
- Next Generation Family Members
- Family Business owners
- Families transitioning after a major liquidity event
- Tax effective giving
GivingSimple provides a cost effective and simple solution for individuals, families and businesses who would like to adopt a structured philanthropy program but don’t have the means or interest to establish their own charitable foundation.
GivingSimple was inspired and created by the philanthropic commitment of EWM Group founder, Brad Scott, to encourage more people in Queensland and Australia to give. The motivation behind GivingSimple was to provide a simple, cost effective solution, together with expert advice and support, to a broader audience than what was typcially available.
GSF is a Public Ancillary Fund (PuAF), structured to allow the formation of individual “subfunds” which can be named, tailored and operated to suit your own needs and giving strategy.
The administration, compliance, reporting and management is provided by the Trustee of GSF at a fraction of the cost that you would spend by establishing your own charitable structure such as a Private or Public Ancillary Fund; allowing you to focus solely on your giving.

How it Works?
How Can I Give?
Through the GivingSimple Foundation ‘GSF’, you can form an individual “subfund” which can be named, tailored and operated to suit your own needs and giving strategy. Your subfund can commit to a cause, represent your family legacy or signify your business philanthropic commitment.
Establishing a subfund through GSF enables donors to create a charitable gifting plan that provides the opportunity to give now and receive a full tax deduction, but with the ability to disburse the funds to charities over time; ensuring a legacy of philanthropy long into the future.
Establishing your own subfund is simple .

EWM Group Charitable Fund
The EWM Group Charitable fund is the firm’s own sub-fund of the Giving Simple Foundation. The fund is focused on making a meaningful difference in the areas of child protection and education for disadvantaged children, and general programs to support the health and well-being of our next generation.
The firm’s endeavour in this area is possible through the continued support of EWM Group’s shareholders, staff, clients, supporters, and friends.
