Navigating the field of global philanthropy can be challenging, especially when you are an individual donor or working with a small foundation. Barriers such as identifying partners, setting clear expectations, performing due diligence and reporting, transferring funds, lack of on-the-ground relationships, unstable legal and governmental structures, and the U.S. regulatory environment can stymie even the most sophisticated donor. Please join Philanthropy Northwest, Pangea Giving and the Northwest Global Donors Exchange for a full-day, interactive workshop that will examine key issues and considerations related to global giving and help you identify the relevant, well-informed and culturally sensitive strategies for giving abroad.
