Today we're joined by three members of SVCF’s Grants, Gifts and Compliance team — D. Lea Rauscher, vice president; Christine Morissette, senior director of grants administration; and Damon James, international grants administration officer — for a conversation about the ins and outs of international grantmaking.

SVCF grants millions of dollars to international charities, but it's by no means a simple process. The participants outline the collaborative approach SVCF takes when working with donors who want to make international donations. They also discuss the importance of gathering information about international organizations and setting grant agreements with grantees.
