Protecting Our Institutions: International Due Diligence Survey Results

As philanthropy becomes increasingly complex, the importance of thorough scrutiny and risk management in accepting donations has never been more crucial. But as the number of fundraising institutions adopting risk management and due diligence strategies grows, it’s becoming harder to know how your institution is tracking against the norm.

BWF, Pyro.Solutions and Xapien have teamed up to launch the third edition International Due Diligence Survey to generate insight into different due diligence strategies, tactics, and processes across the sector in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.

Join us for this webinar where we’ll present the findings and reflect on current and future industry norms around due diligence in the philanthropy sector.
