The King Baudouin Foundation and Give2Asia, together with their global affiliates, have announced a new partnership to promote and facilitate cross-border charitable giving. The organisations hope that corporate and individual donors will benefit from global expertise and streamlined international donations across five continents.
‘Donors in every country deserve a simple and trusted way to support charities across borders,’ said Thomas Leysen, Chair of the KBF Board of Governors. ‘This partnership will offer a new calibre of philanthropic service to individuals and corporations who want to make a difference.’
Through the collaboration, KBF and Give2Asia hope that donors, philanthropists, corporations, and foundations will benefit from more geographic options for tax-deductible giving, a wider network of vetted nonprofits and grantees, and high-quality services and philanthropic advice with similar fees offered globally.
As part of the agreement, KBF is establishing the KBF Endowment Fund at Give2Asia to support Give2Asia’s future growth. The organisations are also exchanging board members to further deepen the partnership.
‘We see this collaboration as an opportunity to stimulate Asian-driven philanthropy to be an even more positive force in Asia and around the world,’ said George SyCip, Chairman of Give2Asia. ‘We look forward to working with KBF to strengthen communities and to foster Asia’s growing nonprofit sector.’
