Research Services

For Donor Advised Fund clients and Philanthropy Fund clients

Download our brochure

You may be deliberating over which charities to give to in your local area and beyond, or be feeling overwhelmed by the incredible breadth of ministries engaging with causes important to you. Perhaps you simply want to see what choices you have, but don’t have the time to look into them yourself. 

At Stewardship, it’s our desire to see joyful, informed and impactful generosity and it’s our mission to facilitate this for our donors. 

As a Philanthropy Services client, you can benefit from our bespoke research service, offering three levels of research and reporting on charities and church ministries. 

Number 1

Level one

You can expect a concise report consolidating the information already available across the public domain. The document will give you a spread of active charities and ministries, sorted by location or cause – depending on what you want to know. Level one research is Included within the Philanthropy Fund and Donor Advised Fund fee.

Number 2

Level two

If you need a little more information, our team can delve further into the detail. We can speak to a range of different charities and ministries, engaging with them to build a clear picture of their set-up, emerging initiatives and current funding gaps. Level two research can be carried out at an additional fee of £200 to £500 per organisation.

Number 3

Level three

We are proud to partner with Eido Research, providing a thorough, robust and Kingdom-focused level of impact evaluation. This is an option for most grants, although we recommend it for all grants over £250,000. Level three research offers a bespoke service, please contact our team for more information.

Our partner

To help measure and improve the impact of your giving, we are delighted to partner with Eido Research. Eido is a team of impact researchers who specialise in working with Christian organisations. Their research will shed light on the impact of your giving, enabling you to have confidence in its effectiveness today and guide your decision-making tomorrow. Not only will their input strengthen your own giving but you will also play a part in building a base of knowledge that will enable the Christian sector to maximise the value it adds to society.

Start your journey with us

For some, it's a desire to bring about change to our local and global communities. For others, it's a response to God's generosity. Whatever your goal, our first step together is to arrange an initial consultation or visit to discuss your philanthropic needs.
