Once you've received U.S. approval, you can get approved to fundraise from Canada, the U.K., and Australia by filling out a simple grant application with each of our partner organizations. From within your account, head to the International section to obtain and complete the application.


Fonds de Dotation IG (FDD-IG) is a French charity that can facilitate tax-deductible giving from French donors to international projects, including those carried out in Israel. Once approved, your donors will donate to FDD-IG, a French charity who issues them a tax-deductible CERFA receipt for the full amount of the donation. FDD-IG will then donate the funds to your organization, for a specific project that you will conduct for FDD-IG.

The project that you operate in Israel, and on behalf of FDD-IG, must be in one of the following areas.

  • Emergency operations to deal with disasters of an unforeseeable and occasional nature, whatever their cause.
