International Grantmaking: Navigating the Challenges of Legal and Regulatory Barriers

Donors who give to projects and partners outside of the United States have the opportunity to make real and lasting impacts in communities. But when foundations want to make grants to non-501(c)(3)s, the rules governing cross-border funding can be complex.

Join this webinar to learn how to support foreign grantees while managing risk, complying with the regulations governing this work, and protecting your reputation as a funder when working in foreign contexts. We will review rules in the United States that regulate giving abroad, and examine complex foreign regulatory systems that govern charitable in-flows in several countries, such as India, China, and Mexico.

Note: This is the second of a two-part series; part 1 is International Grantmaking: Trusting Relationships are Critical to Success.
