International giving with CAF


International philanthropy at Charities Aid Foundation encompasses the donations received via our giving vehicles, services and partnerships that are granted to not-for-profit organisations based outside of our operating countries (UK, US and Canada). 

Our combination of advice, due diligence and experience allows donors to move funds across borders – ensuring they are disbursed safely – anywhere in the world.

Our international network of partners – independent, locally-led organisations working at the forefront of philanthropy – helps us facilitate flexible cross-border giving at the highest standards of regulatory compliance.

Our focus


 As more people look to give internationally, we're here to help. 

We ensure donations stay secure, cost-effective, and where possible tax advantaged. Our verification service ensures funds go to genuine causes and stay compliant with UK (HMRC), US and Canadian rules on foreign donations. As the only organisation of our scale and level of expertise to manage donations to overseas non-profits, we ensure the highest standards of regulatory compliance, reducing risk to the reputation of our donors.

We enable donors to make strategic, impactful gifts to any qualifying non-profit overseas, raise funds across the US, Canada, UK and EU, or build up a foundation or trust in the most efficient way. Via CAF group you can reduce risk, reputation exposure, and the costs and administration usually associated with cross-border giving.
