Grants Coffee Talk: Nonprofit Due Diligence and Supporting Documents

E.C. Pollick Byrnes

This discussion centers around the importance and variety of methods for performing nonprofit due diligence in grantmaking. Every foundation is different when it comes to types of documents they collect and how they use the data. Listen to this group discussion to learn what documents your peers are collecting and how they’re using them to better their grantmaking!

We discuss:

  • What are your foundation’s required due diligence practices?
  • Do you use any innovative or unusually revealing methods when researching nonprofits?
  • How does this process influence you/your committee’s decision on which organizations receive what type of funding?
