Today, Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAFAmerica) officially launched NGOAmerica.org, a streamlined approach for corporations, foundations, families, and individuals to support important philanthropic efforts both at home and abroad with confidence.
These new services are a comprehensive response to new proposed Treasury Department regulations, announced via advance notice of proposed rulemaking on September 24, 2012, which may be relied upon now and until final regulations are issued. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton highlighted these regulatory changes in September when she spoke at the Clinton Global Initiative and called for a simpler system for investing in legitimate foreign charities.
NGOAmerica.org is the nation’s first response to the urgent need highlighted by Secretary Clinton, emerging at a time when austerity budgets on many continents have raised the needs of vulnerable populations, placing at risk public health, education, economic development, and disaster recovery efforts. The increased need for assistance, coupled with a tough economic climate for even the most charitable institutions and individuals, makes it even more pressing that America’s deep commitment to helping others is matched with equal dedication to ensuring donated dollars are used meaningfully by credible and impactful organizations.
