  • Forming “friend’s of” organizations to support foreign NGOs
  • Advising private foundations making grants to charities outside the US including equivalency determinations and expenditure responsibility grants
  • Helping nonprofits comply with the U.S. Treasury Department’s anti-terrorism guidelines
  • Working with counsel in the foreign jurisdiction to determine local registration requirements and compliance obligations
