Looking to expand your impact globally? Our new partnership can help

Feb 24, 2020

In an increasingly interconnected world, we know that making a global impact is becoming more popular than ever. To ensure we are providing our donors with the best possible international granting options, we’ve partnered with Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAF America), an industry leader in international grantmaking.


Since 1992, CAF America had been helping donors in the United States expand their giving imprint around the world. Our partnership gives Premier1 donors access to CAF America’s full breadth of expertise with in-depth international due diligence, local connections to organizations around the world, and an extensive track record of success for both nonprofits and donors. Because of this partnership, we are able to offer you the lowest international granting fees in the market. 


Better Together


CAF America’s long history of enabling cross-border philanthropy and working directly with international nonprofits is a true benefit to you. As a member of the CAF Global Alliance, with offices around the world, CAF America has first-hand knowledge of nonprofits and their geographical regions. 


This local connection gives CAF America the ability to expand your charitable reach in a safe and impactful way. Connecting locally also arms CAF America with intimate knowledge of the unique regulations each nonprofit must follow. CAF America uses this knowledge to better navigate the complexities of international due diligence, too. 


For our Premier1 donors, this partnership offers concierge support for your international grantmaking. (Learn more about this service level here).


What’s this mean for you? Your charitable dollars make an impact on the international causes you want to support.
