Through one-on-one consultations, information sharing, facilitated community engagement projects and customized support services, LIN helps donors that want to engage in strategic philanthropy.

One-Time Consultations

 LIN provides pro bono consultations in person, via email and telephone to donors and philanthropic organizations. Consultations are intended to orient, provide information and direct clients to available tools, contacts and resources that can strengthen their giving activities.

Grant Management/Donor Advised Funds

For donors that lack the infrastructure to make and oversee grants, LIN offers fiscal sponsorship services, which includes day-to-day administration, accounting and reporting on a donor's grant programs.

  • Designing a community investment strategy
  • Conducting due diligence on prospective grantees
  • Facilitating partner agreements
  • Establishing impact indicators
  • Supporting communication and reporting

LIN is committed to helping donors design and implement thoughtful, effective philanthropy in Vietnam. Our team is available to help you shape your giving strategy, learn more about issues facing your community or simply become more familiar with effective local NPOs.
