It all begins with a conversation. We visit potential grantees in order to understand what it is they do and how they have an impact. We meet their team; and we hear about the challenges they face.
Then, back at our own organisation, we discuss the project, analyse the relevant documents and form an overall impression.
If, in principal, we feel able to move forward with funding, we then discuss objectives and how to achieve them. We invite the potential grantee to put in a grant application and we draw up a grant agreement.
The grant begins. Together we agree on how often we will meet and how we will keep each other informed about developments.
