In 2012, the Department of Treasury and the IRS issued proposed regulations applicable to private foundations seeking to make grants to foreign organizations using equivalency determinations. At the time, the Council submitted comments in support of the rules, and urged Treasury and the IRS to consider making additional clarifications to the rules that apply to international grantmaking. Today, Treasury and the IRS published a final version of these rules in the Federal Register. The final regulations take up many of the issues that the Council has asked Treasury to address for years in an effort to reduce barriers to global grantmaking for foundations. We commend Treasury for finalizing these rules.

This week, the Treasury Department released long-awaited guidance on mission-related investments (MRIs), which the Council requested this year in our 2015-16 Treasury Priority Guidance Plan comments. The Council, along with the Council of Michigan Foundations and Mission Investors Exchange, continued to engage with key Treasury officials on this issue following our comment submission, and are pleased that they acknowledged the importance of this much-needed clarity for foundations.
