Acting Locally, Thinking Globally: International Grantmaking Trends for US foundations

December 1, 2003

This study analyses trends of international grantmaking of US foundations and found out that, while US foundations' funding overseas has increased since 1990, the entire increase is attributable to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Excluding their grants, international giving as a percentage of total grants of US foundations has actually declined. Also, international giving is concentrated: the top 25 foundations account for more than 64% of all international giving. The report analyses a number of barriers for greater international giving and proposes a strategy to promote greater engagement overseas.
