GlobalGiving performs rigorous due diligence on every organization in the GlobalGiving community in order to ensure they are performing charitable work in a transparent and accountable manner, and that they meet local requirements for registration with their local government.
Global Giving collects and review documentation for every organization, including its legal documents, financial records, program materials, and lists of staff and board members, in order to validate that the organization is running the project as described. They also evaluate the organization’s capacity to implement activities, and communicate about its work, and research the organization’s relationship with previous funders. Finally, they ensure that the organization is compliant with anti-terror guidelines and international guidelines for philanthropy.
Having been vetted and added to the GlobalGiving community, HEDEN is required to submit quarterly project reports, including activities, accomplishments and results of its project to-date. These reports are emailed to donors and publicly available on the project page so supporters can see how their donation is being used and what progress has been made.
GlobalGiving conducts a thorough due diligence renewal on all organizations every two years and make every effort to ensure each organization is personally visited by a GlobalGiving representative once every two years.
