The Foundation is reviewing a full proposal from my organization. Can you tell me anything about your due diligence process?
- If we are reviewing a full proposal, we routinely make site visits, which are arranged by the program staff person working on your proposal.
- Financial review is an essential part of our process. We require up-to-date audited financial statements and other materials, as listed on our application form (see Application Checklist). These will be reviewed in depth and we will follow up with you about any concerns that we might have.
- Board governance is another area of interest for the Foundation. There is a question about this on the application form, and we will explore this with you as part of our due diligence.
