Every day, California Community Foundation donors are making an impact. Their gifts address pressing needs and help revitalize communities around the world.
CCF is determined to ensure that the giving process doesn’t stand in the way of the joy that giving creates. We’re able to do that because our expert staff have decades of experience with charitable regulations, approaches and organizations, here in L.A. and across the globe.
We regularly help donors who want to support international organizations. Federal rules can be complex, and failure to follow them can lead to major tax penalties on the giver. To address this, our grantmaking team performs a thorough due diligence process on international grants, from determining an organization’s public charity status to investigating their financial and organizational stability.
If the charity cannot provide sufficient information to confirm their status, we can also help donors find an organization connected to a U.S.-based charity who might be better able to receive the gift.
Whatever your passion, wherever you want to give, our experienced staff are here to help.
