At Impact Lebanon, we raise money to support viable initiatives for change and relief in Lebanon and distribute it to trusted and rigorously vetted organisations on the ground. We have a team at Impact Lebanon dedicated to vetting other NGOs and leading careful examinations of their suitability to receive our funds.
Our most important selection criteria for beneficiary NGOs is that they are apolitical and non-sectarian, that they are legally registered, that they have ongoing initiatives to address the crisis and that they’ve passed an audit test.
Secondly, we ask them to submit a project proposal detailing how the money will be spent, which we evaluate for urgency, the availability of substitutes (if there is other funding available for this problem), the number of people impacted by the initiative, geographic diversity and alignment with Impact Lebanon’s priorities.
We do not have any running fundraisers at the moment.
