CAF America President & CEO Visiting Grantees in the United Kingdom, Türkiye, and Australia

President & CEO Ted Hart to Host “Together Gathering” Event in Sydney

March 24, 2023

CAF America President and CEO Ted Hart is embarking on a multi-week trip to London, United Kingdom; Istanbul, Türkiye; and Sydney, Australia. During this trip, Ted will meet with a number of CAF America’s most prominent donor clients, charities, and global partners in each region.

On April 12, CAF America, in partnership with Good2Give, will host one of our signature “Together Gathering” events with local grantees and partners in Sydney. The event will bring together key stakeholders from across Australia, including representatives from local foundations, humanitarian organizations, and international charities. Throughout the event, these representatives will be able to share their experiences and knowledge, with the ultimate goal of fostering relationships that create local change on a global scale.

This trip will further expand CAF America’s philanthropic reach and give local charities an opportunity to share their stories with an international audience. Ted will meet with the American Chamber of Commerce in Türkiye to learn about local business response to the recent earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, and how CAF America’s donors can best support local disaster relief and resilience efforts. In Sydney, Ted will be meeting with many of our charity partners individually, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales and UNICEF Australia, as well as the local Business Council of Australia. All of these meetings will build a more comprehensive picture of the Australian philanthropic landscape.

CAF America looks forward to meeting with some of the many international grantees in this region of our charitable network. We are committed to serving as a resource for our clients and partners in the philanthropic sector, and anticipate many learnings from this trip that will benefit us all in the months to come.
