Publications

Situated at the epicenter of philanthropy, CAF America strives to offer a range of publications and seeks diversity in the content that we create. We offer unique insights into the ever-changing world of philanthropy.

From this page you can access materials ranging from our Annual Reports to Case Studies, Stories of Philanthropy, Newsletters, and our Connections Blog.


 

Annual Reports

CAF America is committed to our donors and through our Annual Reports, they can get a comprehensive picture of not only CAF America and its operations, but also the amazing work of our donors. Our Annual Report is not about us, it’s about the organizations and individuals who use our services to make the world a better place.

 

Blog

What does it really mean to be a “global citizen?” How many “bottom lines” can a company truly have? What is “due diligence” and who is due what? Who are the Millennials and how are they disrupting the world of philanthropy? How do you say “Toilets before Temples” in Hindi?

These are all very important questions, and maybe you know the answers or maybe you don’t. Regardless, the CAF America Blog seeks to offer analysis, opinions, commentary, and original research on a diverse array of topics that are of interest to both the philanthropic professional and donors alike.

Check out the CAF America Blog to see which direction philanthropy is going today!

 

Case Studies

Curious about the ins and outs of global grantmaking? Sometimes philanthropy is as simple as writing a check, but most of the time it isn’t. Unforeseen issues can arise that make giving far more complicated, especially when your donation is focused internationally, involves property transfers, or is targeted to a high-risk country or region.

Our Case Studies provide real-life examples of your donations at work and examine the processes behind global and domestic grantmaking. No two donations or donors are the same, but our Case Studies can give you an unprecedented insight into how grantmaking is done and the services and expertise that CAF America can offer.

 

Newsletter

CAF America’s newsletters keep you connected to the philanthropic sector.

From educational webinars on international grantmaking, radio shows on the impact of philanthropic giving, in-depth analysis on best practices for advisors, spotlights on other philanthropic campaigns and global calls for service such as — Nelson Mandela Day, International Day of Charity, and the 2015 #GivingTuesday campaign — CAF America makes it easy to keep up with the latest trends and topics in philanthropy.

 

Stories of Philanthropy

Ten-year-old Hussein was one of 70,000 refugees living in a small and crowded refugee camp in the south of Lebanon. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, twelve-year old Papy was recruited as a child soldier by one of the many armed groups operating in the region. To assist children like Hussein and Papy, international charities like Stichting War Child, work with children in areas experiencing conflict by providing a safe haven. Today, because of their efforts, Hussein and Papy are both back in school.

This is just one example of the many inspirational stories of philanthropy that lead our donors to support some of the most unique and impactful nonprofit organizations around the world.

If you are a public charity eligible with CAF America and would like to share your story of philanthropy with us, please contact our office and a member of our team will conduct an interview and may request photos to accompany an article. The story of philanthropy feature is an excellent way to let more people know about the incredible ways philanthropy is being used to change the world for the better.
