KBFUS, Focus: Europe and Africa

KBFUS, Focus: Europe and Africa

The King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) facilitates thoughtful, effective giving to Europe and Africa. In addition to our work with U.S. donors, we also partner with European and African nonprofits seeking to raise funds in the United States. KBFUS is associated with the Brussels-based King Baudouin Foundation (KBF), a leading foundation in Europe named after Belgium’s late head of state.

Supporting organizations overseas is not always easy. But with our local insights and networks, we smooth the process and help you make the most of your philanthropic funds. You can either recommend a grant to one of the 350 organizations that we already partner with, or we can help you support your favorite organization overseas.

Over the past three years, we have facilitated over $50 million in grants to European and African nonprofits, to support a wide range of educational, cultural, health care, and social justice initiatives, to name a few examples.
