Session Description

The majority of Asian grantmakers are focusing funding on their home country, however there is increasing interest to begin expanding their reach. Challenges of cross-border giving, lack of financial incentives, language barriers, and higher operations costs can seem like a daunting prospect but many organizations find a regional approach to provide much deeper impact. This session will discuss the challenges and opportunities of regional grantmaking from the perspective of practitioners ranging from international foundations to multinational corporations.

Key Takeaways:

  1. What are the common mistakes and biggest opportunities of a regional portfolio?
  2. Organizations making grants across multiple countries need to balance between regional goals and local needs – how should this challenge be addressed in such a diverse market?
  3. What are the key considerations for regional grantmakers when developing strategies
