2018 Grant Cycle

Thank you to all the applicants for an overwhelming response to our ‘Request for Proposal’ under the HSBC Skills for Life programme!

We received over 400 applications from NGOs across 25 states which were evaluated by our screening partner, KPMG.

Screening of applications

Post the preliminary screening, our screening partner KPMG undertook a detailed evaluation of each application to arrive at a shortlist of 121 applications. With this shortlist a telephonic interaction was organised and further shortlisted for field evaluation.

KPMG then undertook the due diligence check and field evaluation to finally arrive at the 48 top applicants.

The Advisory Committee will receive an information docket on each of the top 48 shortlisted applicant and meet early October to select NGOs who will receive grants this cycle.

The decision made by the Advisory Committee will be final and binding.
