ALEXANDRIA, VA , Apr. 01 /CSRwire/ - As a part of its ongoing effort to grow global philanthropy, Global Impact is partnering with Counterpart International to offer a new service to corporate clients that will improve their selection of non-U.S. based partners. Counterpart International’s proprietary service is designed to support the success of corporate charitable investments by screening non-U.S. based organizations to ensure they do not pose a risk to corporate interests. Combined with Global Impact’s renowned advisory services and charity network, this partnership offers tremendous value to corporations.
“Together, Global Impact and Counterpart International are helping corporations ensure their philanthropic investments are well-managed and benefitting the people who need it most, ultimately making the world a better place,” said Global Impact President and CEO Scott Jackson.
With millions of nonprofits operating around the world, it can be difficult to know which ones are legitimate, financially sound, and in compliance with key U.S. regulations and policies. When Global Impact’s corporate partners make grants to non-U.S.-based charities, this service reduces their risks by vetting recipients against a range of legal, fiduciary and reputational risk factors. This vetting process helps Global Impact and its partners build successful partnerships and ensures that investments achieve the intended purpose of helping the world’s most vulnerable people.
“Counterpart International has proprietary systems to efficiently and effectively vet the integrity of organizations—large and small—nearly anywhere in the world. We are excited to work with Global Impact to expand the use of our vetting processes. For corporate leaders, this should become a basic part of good governance in their philanthropic program. In our own program work, we’ve seen it as an effective insurance policy, as we’ve vetted thousands of local partners in some of the most challenging places in the world,” said Counterpart International CEO Joan Parker.
For 50 years Counterpart International has been an innovator, helping people build better lives and more durable futures, community by community. Global Impact is proud to be working with Counterpart International to provide this service to new and existing clients looking to work with non-U.S.-based nonprofits. Vetting provides corporate clients, grant-making organizations and donors with the confidence that funds will go to appropriate groups.
