Due Diligence

All the NGO partners working with CAF India go through a due diligence process to ensure compliance with fiscal, legal and regulatory norms currently being followed in India.

CAF India has developed a set of listing criteria, which are used to determine whether or not an organisation is eligible for validation. This requires an NGO to give details about its board members, governance, financials, detailed review of three years audited financial statements and accounts, organisational structure and a broad programme review.

  • CAF India undertakes a desk review only for groups based outside Delhi or NCR
  • CAF India undertakes due diligence site visits for local NGOs
  • Review is undertaken of governance, organisational and other procedural matters
CAF India has till date validated over 1,300 NGOs. CAF India actively supports over 100 NGOs through its various programmes such as the Give As You Earn , Company Accounts and Donor Advised Funds. CAF India also validates new NGOs based on donor requests.
