The Process

Every organization that meets the requirement for funding will be required to go through an intensive 4-step vetting process.

A Slave 2 Nothing team member will:

Step 1: Will complete a thorough site visit of organizations facilities and observes their programs.

Step 2: Will meet with and interview the leadership from each organization to discuss their mission, vision, history, program successes, strategic plans, etc.

If an organization passes the first two steps, they will be invited to complete stages 3 & 4.

Step 3: Each organization completes a detailed application form, which includes sharing their financial statements and 990 tax returns to be evaluated by the Slave 2 Nothing Foundation team to further evaluate their effectiveness, stewardship and integrity.

Step 4: If an organization is selected to move forward to stage 4 in the vetting process, they will be directed to create specific measurable goals of how (if they were to be funded) the funds would be utilized to improve the effectiveness/influence of their organizations.

Final Decision: Once the 4 step vetting process in completed, these organizations will be brought before the Slave 2 Nothing Board of Directors, who makes the final decision on who receives funding.
