USA and Canada

Facilitating the flux of philanthropy from and to the United States and Canada, in collaboration with Myriad USA and KBF CANADA.

In order to increase its impact internationally, the King Baudouin Foundation works closely with the members of the Myriad alliance for borderless giving created together with its ‘family’: Myriad USA (formerly KBFUS) and KBF CANADA, and through its partnership with Give2Asia, a U.S.-based Public Charity that helps donors based across the globe to facilitate full-cycle grantmaking in China, including Taiwan and Hong Kong SAR.

Myriad USA is at the service of American philanthropists and donors who wish to support good causes in Europe and Africa. KBF CANADA provides support for Canadian philanthropists and donors who wish to develop charitable projects internationally. Via charitable funds that we manage, the Foundation also supports projects in the United States and Canada, notably projects relating to training.

Our activities

  • we advise and propose made-to-measure solutions for American and Canadian donors who wish to support good causes abroad
  • and we support projects of general interest in the United States and Canada.

USA and Canada is part of the programme International
