CAF America, Focus: Worldwide

CAF America is a U.S. public charity that has been helping donors achieve their international charitable giving goals for the past 25 years, with the capacity to issue grants in virtually any country across the globe. In fact, over the last 10 years CAF America and its subsidiaries have given more than $450 million to charitable organizations in over 100 countries around the world. CAF America’s database of over 215,000 eligible international organizations enables donors to make grants in an expedited manner.

CAF America is an official partner of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Philanthropy Platform in concert with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). In conjunction with our extensive network of "on the ground" consultants in Asia-Pacific and Africa and with affiliate international offices, we have the capacity to develop donor giving strategies and identify local organizations which are best aligned with your charitable goals.

Our fee structure is among the lowest in the industry, and all grants are sent via wire transfer, ensuring that your donation is securely received by the beneficiary.
