Our Expertise

Due-diligence & NGO Validation

Working with a network of over 1.5 lac+ NGOs, CSRBOX approaches due diligence in a stringent, robust and transparent way. With an impartial and in-depth assessment, each NGO enlisted is analyzed based on their track record, capacity and compliance, with an intention to bring the best of the sector to the platform. This helps us in enabling credible and lasting partnerships between donors and nonprofits, and ensuring maximum impact on the focused cause.

CSRBOX undertakes close assessment of NGO’s legal, fiscal and regulatory compliances through a desk review, along with extensive research of the NGO’s organizational and programmatic profile. Having been validated and accredited by CSRBOX, the NGO is enlisted on the CSRBOX platform. This helps them get better visibility and outreach support among relevant stakeholders and donors, and also helps them identify areas of improvement. CSRBOX also undertakes due diligence and ethical check of nonprofits for Corporate funding, to help them assess compliance and eligibility of nonprofits to receive grants.

Genpact Social Impact Fellowship is a unique year-long social transformation program launched in 2016. It is a flagship strategic CSR programme of Genpact. Since 2018, CSRBOX has been working alongside Genpact for the success of the Fellowship. Leveraging its wide and diverse network of Nonprofits, CSRBOX reaches out to nonprofits through media, newsletters, Facebook LIVE sessions, etc. For the 2020 chapter, CSRBOX collected and analyzed around 170 applications. Screening involves a multi-level process, starting with due diligence, ethical check, one-on-one connect and alignment to Genpact’s eligibility and pre-requisites. The final level involves micro assessment of the programmatic implications of proposed projects, wherein the organizations are handpicked based on their on-ground impact and commitment to the project. Once the host organizations are selected and onboarded, CSRBOX conducts outreach campaigns for inviting applications from Fellows, who would eventually be deployed in the selected nonprofits to carry out transformational social development projects.
