The Regulatory Compliance Challenge of Cross Border Giving
Donors who wish to have their philanthropic dollars used to support causes in transparent and impactful ways around the world must become aware of both domestic and international regulatory requirements.
Since September 11, 2001, nonprofits across the world have come under increased pressure from many governments. Initially seen as potential conduits for terrorist funding (especially pre-revised FATF Recommendation 8), nonprofits continue to work in an often dizzying maze of regulations that impose burdensome requirements. Now more than ever, full regulatory compliance speaks not only to making the outbound transfer of funds possible, but also to enable the foreign nonprofit to access the funding in their host country, without inadvertently threatening their legal standing.
This webinar will provide a comprehensive picture of how donors and the nonprofit sector can continue to operate within the confines of domestic and foreign regulations relying on the 3Rs of cross-border giving: regulation compliance, risk mitigation, and reputation protection.
