International NGOs

Americans give more to charity than any other nation in the world, contributing over $300 billion each year.  Americans give both at home to worthy causes in the United States, and to charitable activities throughout the world.  Pfau Englund Nonprofit Law guides international NGOs (nongovernmental organizations) through the maze of  tax law to set-up a U.S. entity that may appeal to U.S. taxpayers for financial and other support.
