Services for international organizations
As a nonprofit outside of the U.S., you face unique challenges. Many private funders are hesitant to give money to international causes, because they’re unsure if they’re legitimate. If you do receive funding, it can be a hassle to transfer the money into your organization’s bank account.
Access Philanthropy can help you launch a local presence to establish credibility with U.S. funders. We can also act as a fiscal representative, accepting and distributing funds on your behalf.

If you decide to establish a U.S. branch for your charity, it will need a local governing board. We can help you select suitable board members or train the board members of your choice.
How you are viewed in the grantmaking community? How should you be positioned? Our research provides answers to these key questions, as well as answers to questions you may not have thought to ask.
Grantwriting & proposal submission
You’ll never get a cookie-cutter grant proposal from us. Instead, you’ll receive a strong, tailor-made proposal that targets the funders most likely to support you. Need help submitting a proposal? We can compile required materials like your budget and executive bios, and make sure your proposal gets out in time.
We offer over 20 different workshops to help you discover and develop relationships with prospective funders. Workshops include 100 Top U.S. Grantmakers and Working with U.S. Corporate Funders. We also can create a custom workshop on the topic of your choice.
