International Project Funds

Donate to Specific Projects That Meet Your Philanthropic Goals



​International Project Funds (IPFs) are a convenient and simple way for you to support and manage complex global philanthropic initiatives. An IPF allows you to make charitable gifts to CAF Canada at any time and support current projects or projects that will be funded at a later date.

Together with our partners at CAF America, we maintain a database of 3,000+ pre-approved charity partners in over 100 countries. We are always here to recommend a charitable project that fits your interests and philanthropic goals.

Or if you have a project in mind, you can recommend that CAF Canada supports a new or ongoing charitable project to qualified organizations within Canada or around the world.
