What you should know (For Organizations outside the US)

Any charity set up in the US is a totally autonomous organization. Using a US charity to simply raise money that will fund projects outside the US via a UK charity does not go down too well with donors unless the work is in collaboration. For example, medical research and overseas aid projects.

Assuming all this has been thought through and you still want to establish an organization in the States here are some interesting statistics.

 

The health of American Giving

Americans gave $373.25 billion in 2015. This reflects a 4.1% increase from 2014.1
Corporate giving in 2015 increased to $18.46 billion – a 3.9% increase from 2014.1
Foundation giving in 2015 increased to $57.19 billion – a 6.5% increase from 2014.1

There is a direct correlation between the level of giving and the rise of the stock market. All things being equal giving in 2018/19 should be higher.

Info from the National Philanthropic Trust

 

It’s a lot of money, but keep in mind according to the National Centre for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), there are more than 1.5 million non-profit organizations, so a lot of competition!
