NGO Due Diligence

We provide NGO due diligence services to enable donors to make 'informed' donation decisions

Due diligence exercise is crucial for grant makers looking at supporting new NGO partners or renewing the contract with ongoing NGO partners – by assessing the NGO on various qualitative and quantitative parameters and then make an informed donation decision.

Our Research Team, which includes Social Sector Experts and experienced Chartered Accounts, is well-equipped to assess the targeted NGO partners and their programs and comment on their existence issues, governance issues and finance issues. Based on your concern areas, we will outline the criteria and framework for the NGO due diligence activity. 

In most cases, the Due Diligence exercise covers both, qualitative and quantitative parameters like financial analysis, dependency on key donors, ratio analysis, succession plan and management depth, operating practises and process flows, ongoing litigations, etc.

HelpYourNGO is a One-stop Shop for Donors - from formulating a Giving Strategy to identification of NGO partners, from conducting NGO visits to Program Monitoring and sharing periodic Reports – we support our donor community at all stages of their philanthropic journey.


Due diligence is a risk mitigation exercise for grant-makers aimed at verifying the information submitted by the targeted NGOs. Involving professionals and multiple stakeholders will give the most accurate results.

Success Stories

Inspiring change for good sanitation and hygiene

Anjana who has been recently elected as the village Sarpanch is playing an active role in spreading the message of safe sanitation and hygiene for her villagers. She has actively participated in all the awareness activities conducted and helps to ensure sustainability of the project. She says, “We have seen a lot of change in our habits. Earlier, most of the villagers had to resort to open defecation and we fell ill and were attacked by animals; rainy season was the most difficult time especially for young mother and pregnant females. Now most of the families have toilets and the life quality of life has improved. Everyone uses their toliets and there is no one who goes for open defecation. This is a good initiative for my village’s development."

Challenging gender stereotypes

Laxmi’s father comprises of her father who does housekeeping work, her mother who is a housewife and 2 younger brothers who are in school. Their family income was Rs.13,500/-.per month.

After completing her Class 10th from a Night School, Masoom’s Career cell supported Laxmi to do a Diesel Mechanic course from Industrial Training Insitute (ITI) Mumbai. This is a male dominated course and Laxmi was the only girl in her batch who was doing this course. Masoom appreciated her motivation as Laxmi was challenging the status quo. Laxmi successfully completed her course and went on to do an apprenticeship in Mahindra and Mahindra earning Rs.8,500/- per month.

In Laxmi’s own words, “I am very thankful to Masoom for providing me support for doing a Diesel Mechanic course. Girls never do this course, but Masoom guided, supported and motivated me to opt for this course. This field is challenging for girls and I am the only girl in my department. I am happy I am able to contribute to my family income.”
