In our globalized and increasingly flat world, how do we best support clients interested in international giving? SVCF is the largest community foundation in the United States and the third largest international grantmaker. We provide a platform for donors to meet their charitable goals whether they be rooted in the United States or around the world. Learn about our best practices and topics ranging from equivalency determination and expenditure responsibility to corporate disaster relief and grantmaking. This dynamic presentation will include case studies to illustrate how we provide the highest level of service to our clients while observing guidelines set by the IRS.
