The value of philanthropy to society is growing worldwide and its complementary role to public action is no longer denied. In today’s borderless world, increasingly mobile citizens and corporations wish to support international causes and foreign charities or launch global philanthropic movements and campaigns. Cross-border giving has therefore become an ever-growing trend. However, despite the internationalization of the philanthropic sector, the global fiscal environment is still far from being satisfactory and few practical solutions have been developed to overcome these barriers. This session will present global trends in philanthropy and latest research on legal and fiscal barriers followed by discussing the needs of donors – individuals and corporations – as well as fundraisers to find solutions that enable and boost tax efficient, secure cross-border philanthropy and worldwide philanthropic initiatives.
- Global Philanthropy Trends, Needs, Challenges and Opportunities.
