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

What do you get when you pair a grants management professional and a general counsel? A lively discussion about best practices in international grantmaking, of course!  No passport or foreign language experience required.

Join us to learn about how to navigate the legal and programmatic issues in making grants outside the United States.  The presenters will include an associate general counsel of a private foundation who will walk through the legal requirements under the Internal Revenue Code, as well as touch on other issues such as OFAC compliance.  An experienced grants management professional will present a series of case studies of recent grants to explore best practices, providing an insight on the rewarding experience of international grantmaking.
