USA and Canada

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

In order to increase its impact internationally, the King Baudouin Foundation works closely with the members of its ‘family’, KBFUS and KBF CANADA. KBFUS 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.
