Getting started with American foundation grants

Reshuffled yet still enticing: American foundations giving internationally post-COVID

Over the past 15 years, international nonprofits have received hundreds of millions of dollars in grants from American foundations like the Goldman Sachs Foundation, the John Templeton Foundation, and the Gates Foundation. Many institutions still don’t know how this market works, how big it is, where potential competitors are, what hurdles to expect, or where to get started.

COVID changed the landscape of US foundational giving internationally and having a well-developed strategy is your best chance for your cause to gain support from American foundations. This session will reveal how this somewhat hidden world works, and gives you the answers you won’t be able to google.
