What are the benefits of using NGOsource instead of a legal firm or external counsel?

Using NGOsource helps centralize, standardize, and streamline the equivalency determination process, which benefits the entire philanthropic community. Because grantmakers often have overlapping needs, grantmaker members benefit from our discounted rates.

NGOsource also improves the intended grantee experience because our global partners offer superior NGO support, interacting with NGO staff in their own language and during their office hours whenever possible. Additionally, by centralizing the process, NGOs need only complete the ED process only once for multiple grantmakers, freeing up time to do important programmatic work.
