International fundraising

Are you looking to raise funds for a charitable project? Would you welcome support from around the globe?

The Myriad alliance for borderless giving connects funders and project leaders, wherever they are, to make a better world, together. As a founding partner in this global network, the King Baudouin Foundation can help your organisation draw on the support of thousands of potential donors, notably in North America, Asia, and Australasia, and will package the most efficient legal, fiscal, and administrative structure to channel their support toward your goals, unhindered by frontiers.

Multiple advantages

Thanks to Myriad, charities in close to 100 countries can tap into support from donors (private individuals, businesses, and organisations) across four continents. By offering funders international legal and administrative services, as well as many of the tax advantages of domestic giving, Myriad helps grantees secure maximum benefit from the generosity of philanthropists overseas.

International cooperation

The Myriad alliance is anchored in, and strengthens, existing collaboration between several international philanthropy structures:

  • the King Baudouin Foundation, establishes links between donors and projects supported in Belgium, Europe, Africa and Latin America. The King Baudouin Foundation is also one of the leading founding partners of the Transnational Giving Europe network.
  • Myriad USA (formerly KBFUS), draws on over two decades of experience in offering advice and made-to-measure solutions for US donors wishing to support good causes abroad, in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, Africa, and Latin America.
