Voluntary Organisation Grading

Is your voluntary organisation (VO) seeking funding for social responsibility activities?


Then you must know that low regulatory compliance and lack of credibility affects donor confidence and inflow of money. 


That’s why, a grading by an established agency can help establish your VO’s credentials, setting you apart from peers and making it easier to attract donors. 


CRISIL offers a bouquet of assessment and screening services for stakeholders in the not-for-profit space. The VO grading offers comprehensive assessment of a not-for-profit, with detailed insights on its governance structure, management capabilities, delivery capabilities, processes, programme implementation capabilities, funding profile, and cost structure. 

  • Our grading process includes document verification, in-depth analysis of financial and performance data, discussion and office visit, and a draft report presentation
  • Our 4P framework, encompassing the parameters of profile, process, programme, and proficiency, ensures an unbiased assessment
