Beyond Borders: Go International Act Locally/Think Globally

Philanthropy is growing and gaining visibility around the world. Increasingly, donors are expanding their portfolios to include local and global giving as strategies to address issues that are important to them. However, making grants to institutions outside the United States is complex.  There are various requirements that funders need to comply with when giving grants to non-U.S. organizations. During this breakout session, HRA members shared how global grantmaking is helping them advance their missions and make a positive impact in the world, and the lessons learned along with way. The session facilitated a robust discussion about the challenges in giving grants to international organizations. All HRA members were encouraged to attend, whether your organization engages in global grantmaking or you’re interested in the possibilities for giving grants globally.
