Take Your Giving Global
Cross-border giving may be essential to meet your foundation’s philanthropic goals, but it can also be complicated, time-consuming, and costly. If your foundation is seeking to engage in international philanthropy but it lacks the resources to do so or doesn’t know where to begin, we are here to assist you. CAF America’s global reach allows you to expand your giving to foreign charities without the substantial investment in staff and training required to ensure full legal compliance.
Our compliance-driven solutions give you peace of mind and eliminate any administrative burden associated with granting to non-US beneficiaries. We offer tailored solutions to meet the diverse needs of:
- Community Foundations – We are a preferred partner for community foundations for cross-border grantmaking and due diligence services.
- Private and Family Foundations – We provide private and family foundations with a grantmaking back-office, so that you can avoid costly investments in staff and expertise.
CAF America’s support for your foundation’s giving can be proportional to the volume and intensity of your cross-border grantmaking activity. Make periodic single gifts, or open a Donor Advised Fund with us so that you can advise multiple grants without needing to include each one on your Form 990.
CAF America can work with your existing grant management platform to provide real-time updates about your grantmaking activities, including the vetting status of your advised grantees and your available balance. We partner with a number of leading philanthropic technology providers: speak with us about any grants management platforms that you currently use for your grantmaking activities, and our staff will be able to advise on how best to integrate our systems to maximize your efficiency.
BESPOKE REPORTING SERVICES
CAF America can tailor the structure of its program support to include data collection and reporting services that best measure the impact of your programs and undertake post-grant analysis. Furthermore, CAF America maps every client grant to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), allowing you to track your grantmaking against a global standard. Throughout our partnership, we are committed to maintaining full alignment with your program requirements and desired outcomes.
