IPN seeks detailed information from registered organisations to efficiently connect them with donors that Sattva works with. This data is shared with numerous donors, eliminating the need for repetitive submissions for each new opportunity. Here's why this information is crucial:
Enhanced Long listing Potential: By sharing updated profile and compliance-related information, organisations increase their chances of being long listed for grant possibilities.
Due diligence to assess credibility and compliance for funding opportunities: Thorough organisational information demonstrates transparency and accountability, establishing trust with donors and corporate funders.
Improved content and features: By analysing the information shared by the organisation, IPN will be able to provide relevant content, opportunities, and services based on specific geographies, sectors, causes, and more. By seeking detailed organisational information, IPN facilitates effective matchmaking and streamlines the long-listing and shortlisting process. It also fosters transparency and enhances fundraising opportunities for the impact organisations.
