Fundraising from America
Most American individuals, foundations & companies will only support charitable organizations outside the USA by making gifts and grants to a US non-profit known as a 501(c)(3) which then uses the funds to support the charitable organization outside the US. This allows individuals and companies to get a tax benefit for the gift (called a tax-deduction) and satisfies certain legal requirements placed on foundations.
Gifts and grants given directly to charitable organizations outside the United States are not tax-deductible for individuals and companies. Foundations are subject to legal restrictions when giving directly to charitable organisations outside the US.
Thus, charitable organizations outside the US that want US donations need to either set up a 501(c)(3) themselves or use a 501(c)(3) intermediary organisation.
Chapel & York has detailed material available about its 501(c)(3) services which includes a discussion about how to set up a 501(c)(3) to support you or using an intermediary such as The American Fund for Charities.
