The Seattle International Foundation invites funders to join them for the 2019 Central America Donors Forum in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The Central America Donors Forum (CADF) is the premier networking and learning space to advance philanthropy and development efforts in Central America. Each year, CADF brings together over 400 leaders from business, philanthropy, government, and civil society to discuss priority issues and successful models of development, and explore co-investment for social impact.
The Peace and Security Funders Group is a network of public, private and family foundations, and individual philanthropists who make grants or expenditures that contribute to peace and global security. Its annual meetings are an opportunity for members to connect with new and existing partners, and engage in strategic discussions; learn about emerging issues; share best practices and lessons learned from their grantmaking and programs; and collaborate on projects.
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.
Philanthropy Northwest, Pangea Giving and the Global Donors Exchange present: A stimulating discussion about investing in fragile states, the current situation in Burundi, and the Segal Foundation’s innovative programs to build capacity with grassroots community development organizations with Dedo Baranshamaje, Director of Special Projects for the Segal Family Foundation.
