How can we help you?
Bring your Philanthropic Vision to Life
Individual philanthropy usually begins with a story: a story of hope, a story of courage, a story of inspiration. At CAF America, we specialize in creating a seamless transition from aspiration to meaningful action. We understand that effective philanthropy begins with a clear vision and a focused plan for making that vision a reality. Our unparalleled expertise and personalized solutions help you bring your philanthropic vision to life.
Give Anywhere Safely
By working with CAF America, you benefit from our global perspective, our industry-leading due diligence, and the leverage of the CAF Global Alliance which connects you to local issues and the organizations on the ground solving them.
Are you looking to take your philanthropy farther? Partnering with CAF America brings your giving to a global scale, allowing your dollars to achieve greater impact. When you give through us, you are able to claim a charitable deduction in the United States whereas by giving directly to a foreign nonprofit, you would not be able to do so.
Build Your Legacy Giving
CAF America assists donors seeking to leave an enduring charitable legacy by making donor-advised grants to programs funded by their will or estate. Depending on the estate size and the donor’s philanthropic vision, a legacy plan can be simple or complex, short-term or long-term, and a Legacy DAF can provide multi-generational opportunities for a donor’s philanthropic legacy both at home and abroad.
Regulatory Compliance and Giving Solutions
We assume all risks involved in cross-border grantmaking and take every measure to ensure regulatory compliance while protecting you and your clients’ reputation. These services are built into our grantmaking protocols, allowing for efficient and secure giving across the globe.
Complex Asset Donations
Giving non-cash assets can be a powerful component of any planned giving strategy and can increase the impact of your clients’ philanthropy. Your clients can support any domestic or international charity by donating assets to a CAF America Donor Advised Fund.

Donor Advised Funds
Establishing a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at CAF America is an efficient and cost-effective way to conduct both domestic and international giving through a single fund. It eliminates the considerable time and expense required to establish and maintain a private foundation as well as obtain tax-exempt status from the IRS.
Donor Advised Gifts
Donor Advised Gifts (DAGs) are the perfect solution for US donors who want to give globally without establishing a fund. With DAGs, donors make a single tax-effective gift to CAF America whenever desired and recommend that the funds be further granted to the foreign organization or charitable project of their choosing. CAF America can also recommend an eligible organization that fits a donor’s interests and philanthropic goals.
Investments at CAF America
CAF America DAFs can be invested to maximize the impact of our donors’ charitable contributions. We allow donors to choose from a number of vetted investment portfolios, and we offer the option to restrict an investment policy to specifically ESG-aligned assets.
