SmartSimple and CAF America form partnership to enhance international grantmaking and CSR programs

We’re excited to announce our partnership with CAF America, a global leader in domestic and cross-border grantmaking, to provide a full service, end-to-end solution for SmartSimple’s corporate enterprise and community foundation clients.

Our collaboration joins SmartSimple’s leading-edge workplace giving and grants management software with CAF America’s expertise in charity vetting and advisory services. Together, this solution creates a completely integrated client platform and experience. From workplace giving, campaign management, charity vetting, to donation and grant payment processing, this partnership offers a one-stop shop service that handles every backend function of your foundation.

Now, here’s a breakdown of the benefits

What SmartSimple clients will get from this partnership:

  • SmartSimple Donor Advised Funds hosted by CAF America
  • Tax receipt at the time the donation is made CAF America’s enhanced Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (AML & CTF) protocol 
  • Enhanced due diligence and charity vetting 
  • Increased transparency for advised gifts, ensuring funds make it to the intended charitable recipient 
  • Expedited payments to eligible domestic and foreign charities 

Mike Reid, SmartSimple Founder and COO, sees tremendous value in this partnership, remarking, “Navigating global grantmaking can be an extraordinarily complex and risky business.  By working with CAF America to create a fully integrated verification solution, collectively, we are helping our clients de-risk the process and achieve their philanthropic goals.”

Ted Hart, President and CEO of CAF America, said, “SmartSimple provides an innovative, yet simple and highly customizable platform to fit the technology needs of a wide variety of philanthropic platforms. CAF America is proud to partner with SmartSimple to assist with mitigating risk and ensuring regulatory compliant grantmaking.”
