Wishing You a Delightful Holiday
The holidays are almost here, but we’ve got you covered. Although the NGOsource office closes for holiday break December 24, 2014 – January 2, 2015, we keep our commitments to you. We will meet all 2014 and early 2015 due dates, provided that NGOs submit complete applications by their deadlines and respond to inquiries in a timely fashion. As always, we will notify you directly if we expect any delays.

Despite the holiday schedule, you can reach us during the break at with any time-sensitive inquiries.

Wishing you the best this season,
Danish, Fonda, Ken, Kyle, Meghan, Saerin, Sangeeta, and Sheila

Selecting Candidates for Your ED Request
Candidates for Your ED Request
If you’re considering requesting an equivalency determination (ED) for an NGO but want to know if the organization is a good ED candidate, the prescreening questionnaire developed by our experts offers helpful factors to consider. Of course, our legal review team can only make a conclusive ED determination through our comprehensive review process. But these questions can help you start selecting candidates.

Members can contact us to get a copy.

Specialized Templates Streamline the Process
NGOsource has experience doing EDs for NGOs with a wide variety of missions. We even offer specialized templates for NGOs that qualify for EDs in different ways, such as religious and health care NGOs. This extra guidance helps make the process even more streamlined for both grantmakers and NGOs. Learn about NGOsource’s process.

IRC works to change the dialogue and build up local forces on this issue. For the full story and why IRC’s program funding coordinator says NGOsource is a “great initiative,” read on.

A Clear Need
“Asylum Aid owes its success to the generosity of its funders, who recognize that legal work of the highest quality should be available to those who most need it. The equivalency determination creates the potential for us to work with U.S. funders who can extend their help to the same cause … essential for running an effective organization at scale and critical [to the] thousands who come to us each year for help.””

— Russell Hargrave,
Asylum Aid
We do the legwork, legal work, and paperwork for you. NGOsource allows U.S. grantmakers to quickly and accurately determine if an overseas NGO is equivalent to a U.S. public charity (the process of "equivalency determination" or “ED”).
