The idea of offering additional, non financial support to grantees has been around for a while, and this is common practise amongst donors, whether Trusts & Foundations, corporates or institutional funders.
- Can the data show how many “donors” actively do this, and what that support amounts to? (i.e. not just a financial analysis, but other quantifiable benefits)
- what is the ratio of actual grant to “plus”?
- what is the number, value and ratio of requests for funding rejected because the “plus” element is not big or good enough (i.e. significantly smaller than the money required; not aligned to expertise of funder or does not help them fulfil their corporate strategy)
