Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAF America)
Founded in 1992, Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAF America) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding borderless charitable giving among donors in the United States. We work to change the culture of giving by making international philanthropy safe, quick, easy and effective for U.S. donors. CAF America has established a reputation as the premier intermediary for U.S. donors who want to directly support international charities. In that time, donors have leveraged CAF America’s best-in-class due diligence process to provide thousands of charities in over 110 countries with more than $500 Million in grants.
In pursuit of its mission to expand global giving opportunities for U.S. donors, CAF America remains issue neutral, and will work in any country in which it is legally allowed to do so. As a result, CAF America has established an unparalleled depth of knowledge on international regulatory environments and grant making best practices. This allows CAF America to ensure that donors’ money reaches its advised destination safely and securely, and that its charity partners are effective stewards of the grants they receive. CAF America is part of the CAF Alliance which has offices and affiliates in: Australia, Bulgaria, India, Russia, South Africa, United Kingdom, and Brazil.
CAF network offices have expertise in grant making services for donors, corporate social responsibility, charitable giving, charity investments, banking, research, and managing appeals. The CAF Alliance alone manages over $4 billion of charity and donor monies.
Advice is provided through our Philanthropic Advisory Services to corporations, foundations and high-net worth individuals and families.
