Our advisory services include curated lists, enhanced curation, and challenge design:
- Curated lists: Curated Lists are provided free of charge for any donor who is looking for organizations and projects to build out their portfolios and who have their own staff that will complete any additional due diligence needed to make grants of any size. Curated lists help clients quickly find and identify a set of organizations working in a strategic area of interest. If you are interested in receiving a curated list please contact us.
- Enhanced Curation: Enhanced curation is a step beyond our curated list service. For family offices, individual donors, or foundations with few staff members, we help clients quickly and with confidence find and fund projects aligned with their areas of interest, drawing from a pool of applicants from our challenges. This service appeals to donors who want to move quickly and make at least U.S. $2 million in grants and leverage our database of 6,000+ global non-profit and our rigorous analytical and due diligence processes. Our staff works with you to identify 5-10 organizations, and we work with the organizations to help them refresh their proposals and conduct a new round of due diligence to aid in donor decision making.
- Challenge Design: Our team advises clients who want to design and execute their own open calls and leverage Lever for Change expertise to ensure an open, transparent, and value additive process.
