International grantmaking raises concerns not normally associated with domestic philanthropic programs. Companies and nonprofits that make charitable contributions and grants overseas need to be concerned with the federal tax rules that govern these transactions, along with considerations under the federal Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, and anti-money laundering laws.

This webcast will explore the unique rules that apply to international philanthropy and how to structure an international grantmaking program to best avoid the legal, public relations, and other pitfalls that can occur when contributing to foreign charities.
