Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Myriad USA fills a missing gap in the philanthropic landscape. "Donors with global interests want a knowledgeable, one-stop-shop for all their international giving, regardless of geographic location," says Jean Paul Warmoes, CEO of Myriad USA. "Myriad USA fills this gap. We combine local expertise with a global reach and provide donors with a simple and efficient platform to support their favorite causes across the globe."

Myriad USA offers several services to U.S. donors and foreign nonprofit organizations, including: Donor advised funds, Legacy funds, Disaster response funds, Corporate Plus Advisory Services, Myriad ART for gifts of artworks, and American friends funds for foreign nonprofits seeking to raise funds in the United States. Myriad USA is also an experienced philanthropy architect we adopt a flexible approach and develop tailor-made solutions when needed.

Others are active in the field of international giving, so what makes us different? Myriad USA is built on a better, more generous model that leverages local expertise and prioritizes flexibility. Our board and our team reflect the regions and communities we serve. We share the passion of our nonprofit partners and welcome them to our offices in New York City, where they can host meetings or catch up on work. Through our programs, we spotlight social innovators and enable foreign nonprofits to learn more about successful development strategies. In addition, we provide great customer service, work with dedicated fund managers, and our fees are competitive and transparent.

Myriad USA harnesses the complementary capabilities and expertise of KBFUS and Give2Asia, which in the past three years have facilitated a combined $400 million in grants to foreign nonprofits. It also inherits the mission they share: to help strengthen institutions, empower communities, and improve the lives of people around the world.
