This program is a part of the Legal Series from our PNY Core:

Do you understand all of the options that are available to you when making grants to organizations, groups, and individuals around the world, including in post-conflict regions and countries with governments that are in transition?  Do you know what questions to ask, programmatically, operationally, and legally in order to make grants to support change internationally?

Learn how to navigate the legal and programmatic issues in making grants outside the United States.  The presenters will include the senior director of operations and general counsel of a private foundation who will walk through the legal requirements and other key issues impacting international grant making, such as sanctions, operational considerations, and grant structuring. An experienced grant maker will explore programmatic best practices, providing insight about the rewarding experience and practicalities of international grant making and formation of effective partnerships
