This text describes the mechanics of and the basic legal framework applicable to establishing a charitable institution and explores the advantages and disadvantages of establishing foundations in foreign jurisdictions for US citizens and residents. Charitable activities can be operated flexibly and privately outside the constraints of the US regulatory regime, where the tax benefits available under US law are either unavailable or not needed, or where they are outweighed by the burdens of regulatory compliance. ""International Charitable Foundations"" focuses on practical legal and tax considerations, and includes in the appendices basic tax forms as well as templates for establishing private foundations in foreign jurisdictions.
