Who We Are

The King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) understands that philanthropy is about personal stories. And sometimes, these stories take us beyond our borders. Since opening our offices as a 501(c)(3) public charity in 2002, we have served as a knowledgeable bridge between American donors and nonprofits overseas.

We work with individuals, families, corporations and foundations and help them support their favorite causes and organizations, anywhere in Europe or Africa – whether it’s a children’s hospital in Egypt, a research institute in Belgium, a business school in Kenya, or an art museum in Italy.

We craft personalized solutions for one-time gifts, recurring donations through donor-advised funds, planned giving with legacy funds, and gifts of artworks to museums overseas.

In addition to our work with donors, we also partner with European and African nonprofits. With an American friends fund at KBFUS, they can receive tax-deductible gifts from U.S. donors, while saving the trouble and expense of setting up their own charity in the United States.

Over the past 3 years, KBFUS has facilitated over $50 million in gifts, reaching almost every corner of Europe and Africa.

Flexible. Reliable. Knowledgeable.
This is KBFUS – the leading resource for philanthropic giving to Europe and Africa.
