Philanthropic Services

For Grantmakers

Build your fiscal muscle

Give with greater efficiency and confidence.

Since our earliest days, BDO FMA has worked with leaders in philanthropy to build the “fiscal muscle” of their own internal staff. Our grantmaker-oriented trainings have helped hundreds of Program Officers and Grants Managers develop the skills and confidence they need to understand the story behind the numbers in grantee applications and reports. We deliver customized training series for the staff at individual foundations as well as sessions with multiple grantmaking organizations through affinity groups.

Through our advisory services, we provide tailored support to enhance your financial due diligence process, build your own infrastructure, and strengthen grant policies & practices to boost your grantees’ ability to achieve impact. We also offer analysis of the financial health of your full portfolio of grantees and outsourced grantee due diligence services.

Our Approach

In everything we do, we aim to strengthen the funder-grantee relationship.  We are known for our work supporting a grantee’s ability to manage data and provide meaningful reports — but we also work closely with funders to ensure their requirements and procedures are ultimately supporting their program goals.
