Type: Report


Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, U.S.-based charities have become targets, rather than partners, in the government's war on terror financing. Ineffective federal measures have imposed organizational and social costs far beyond the administrative burdens of compliance. This report addresses the critical lack of balance in the body of anti-terrorist financing regulations and guidelines that effect nonprofit organizations and begins to explore ways of bringing balance and clarity so that nonprofit organizations and grant-making foundations can proceed with certainty to pursue legitimate charitable activities.
