Does Bridgespan offer funding to organizations or individuals?No. Bridgespan itself is a nonprofit; we work with philanthropic and nonprofit organizations but do not provide funding to those organizations.
Can Bridgespan put me or my organization in contact with a funder?As you might expect, we are not in a position to share details about our clients’ philanthropic processes nor substantively engage with nonprofit organizations seeking support. This is meant to ensure that there are no conflicts of interest between our work supporting nonprofits and our work to support donors (see our conflict of interest policy for further details). You can also learn more about finding grants on candid.org.
I've found a fraudulent site about how to get funding from one of your clients. What should I do?If you believe you have found a fraudulent web site or received fraudulent communications, we ask that you not click on any links and report these instances to the proper authorities. Bridgespan staff send emails only from addresses ending in bridgespan.org or bridgespan-social-impact.com. Email from any other domain claiming to be official Bridgespan communications will be fraudulent.
