How We Work
We leverage our network of corporate relationships to match available sponsorship resources with the most suitable, high potential, credible and vetted nonprofits. In addition to identifying and providing funding to nonprofit organisations, we provide tailor-made capacity-building support, mentorship and access to best practices as well as impact assessment and reporting. We believe in creating connections among our grantees by establishing a network of innovative and impactful organisations and individual change-makers that will be able to support each other and share experiences, even after BBS direct support period comes to an end.
When it comes to identifying purpose driven, high potential, nonprofit organisations who would benefit from additional financial and/or technical support., this identification process can be BBS driven or via introductions from our partners. Once a potential nonprofit has been identified, we work with each organisation in the following manner:
Assessment phase to determine whether a nonprofit organisation qualifies for support and to determine their needs.
Accompanying phase to bring like-minded donors and nonprofits together on impactful projects, entailing any combination of funding, capacity building, resourcing, strategic guidance and/or technical support.
