About this grant

This grant supports the Council on Foundations’ Global Philanthropy Program, which is framed around three pillars of activity: 1) effective cross-border grantmaking; 2) policy and regulation of cross-border grantmaking; and 3) global conversations and convening. Over the past 18 months, the grantee has worked with partners on Financial Action Task Force guidelines, kept members aware of changing international regulations that impact cross-border philanthropic flows, maintained a library of resources on international grantmaking on its website, and offered a significant amount of global programming at its conferences. During this grant period, in addition to enhancing and expanding the above activities, the grantee will launch a new Global Philanthropic Strategies educational program. Founded in 1949, the Council on Foundations is a membership organization of private, community, and corporate foundations, primarily in the United States.
