"Due Diligence is an essential aspect of philanthropic practice – it allows you to decide whether an organization is effective at achieving your shared goals and whether you and the organization are a good fit for each other. You should be able to find most of the information necessary for due diligence through the organization’s website and other publicly available resources.”

“Nonprofits need funders who are willing to make flexible, multi-year investments that enable nonprofit leaders to most readily flex their management muscles and capacity for continual improvement. If your goals align with the organization’s, give long-term general operating support. To support effective organizations, pay adequate overhead when you make restricted gifts."
