Review Process

The Grant Giving department will determine the strength of each application based on several factors:

  • Amount and objectives of funding required.
  • Number of beneficiaries
  • How sustainable is the financial model of the organisation.
  • Will the funding provided be required again?
  • How unique is the project being delivered.
  • Impact on local communities
  • Urgency of project being delivered.
  • Effectiveness of measuring deliverables

Due Diligence

Successful applicants will undergo the due diligence process, where the following will be considered: financial wellbeing, compliance, project evaluation and impact assessment, leadership and governance. If required, we may conduct interviews or site visits as well as seek references from partners or beneficiaries.


After the due diligence is completed, KPIs and metrics for measuring performance will be agreed with the organisation. Grant recipients are required to provide periodic reports on the progress of their funded projects. This helps us track the impact of the grants and ensures accountability.
