Establishing US “Friends Of” Fundraising Entities for Foreign Organizations

We have specific experience and expertise working with foreign organizations that want to organize constituents and raise money in the United States. Most commonly, these are educational institutions with American alumnae, but increasingly museums and other cultural organizations aspire to diversify their revenue through US fundraising. The process generally involves assembling a board of directors, and legal organization, creating bylaws, and securing 501 (c)(3) status.

We can help with:

  • Evaluating the feasibility and pathway for a US “friends of” organization
  • Research, outreach, and structure for fundraising
  • Providing governance guidance, help with financial obligations and reporting, etc.
