What is Due Diligence?

Most applications are made by well-run organisations whose stated mission is clearly aligned to that of the grant-maker.

But some are from less well-run organisations or those whose mission is not so aligned. A smaller number in most rounds could be fraudulent. With so many applications being made it is now more important than ever to implement risk-appropriate measures to ensure grants are awarded safely, and to the most deserving.

In 2022/23 Brevio conducted thousands of Due Diligence checks for grant-making organisations, large and small

We have examined more than 1,500 grant-making entities, gaining detailed insights into their end-to-end application processes

Our methodology has contributed to our clients achieving a 90% approval rate for shortlisted applicants

Designing and implementing risk-appropriate and proportionate due diligence processes is crucial to ensuring that grants are awarded safely, and to the most deserving organisations.

Our methodology is positive and collaborative:
we proactively support applicants throughout the process rather than stand-back and find reasons for them to fail.

We invest the time and resources necessary to conduct comprehensive and balanced assessments of each applicant so that grant-makers can make informed, objective decisions
