Charities all over the world want to raise funds from US private sources, which collectively give away over US$ 300 billion per year. There are two broad challenges to meet.
First, there is structure. Nothing is more opaque than another country’s tax code. US charitable laws - because the sector is so large and wealthy - are complex and have few similarities to other countries’ laws. I work with clients to articulate what they need and plan to accomplish in the US, then to equip them with the appropriate structures and systems to accomplish their goals on a cost-effective basis.
The second challenge is greater and more subtle: to help non-US charities to understand the American ‘culture of philanthropy’. This requires, by turns, adapting to US expectations, but at the same time, preserving the ‘exotic’ qualities that will encourage American donors to give outside their own country.
