Your comment: "the challenges for NGOs is access to financing beyond donations and grants" is wrongly phrased.

In the capital markets companies are familiar with the idea of disclosure and a plethora of analysts and ratings firms who recommend and rank different companies. No such system exists in the NGO sector and so investors have no idea who, what and how much is necessary.

This the reason I recently started my company - a rating firm for NGOs.

Whythawk Ratings (white-hawk) promotes economic development by impartially measuring and rating the effectiveness of the health, welfare and poverty relief interventions of development organisations and charities. Whythawk also conducts research on behalf of donors to investigate regional development needs and assist in ongoing surveillance and vigilance of their interventions thereafter.
