In today’s environment, there are a lot of 'givers' who wish to ensure that their philanthropy is strategically, effectively and positively used for the cause it was intended. Correspondingly, there are a large number of projects, NGO’s and social enterprises that are seeking the right kind of funding partnerships and are open to working with the right partners. Bay Diligence has been established to bridge this gap between the ‘givers’ and the ‘receivers’ and to provide value add to the organisations that it supports.
Bay Diligence was founded in 2013 and seeks to apply a “private equity investment” type approach to high impact social projects and social enterprises. The key pillar of the initiative is to identify projects based on well-defined frameworks and then apply due-diligence principles and a robust monitoring process to ensure that impact is created. Bay Diligence provides grant support and can also provide capital support to social enterprises.
