Facilitating thoughtful, effective giving across borders.

Since the opening of its offices in New York City in 2002, the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) has served as a knowledgeable bridge between American donors and nonprofit organizations overseas.

We work with individuals, families, corporations and foundations, and help them support their favorite causes across the globe – 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.

KBFUS is a ‘philanthropy architect’ – 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 foreign nonprofit organizations. 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 facilitated over $210 million in grants, providing much needed funding to hundreds of nonprofits across the globe, working in a broad diversity of fields.

KBFUS is a U.S. public charity within the meaning of Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donors are eligible for a U.S. income tax deduction for their contributions, to the extent permitted by U.S. tax law.
