  • Request for Proposal (RFP) Management for vetting or reviewing service providers
  • Assistance in developing policies and procedures regarding:
    • Investment policy
    • Conflicts of interest and purchasing
    • Cybersecurity, confidentiality and disaster recovery

Fiduciary Gap Analysis:

Our CEFEX Analyst provides a high-level overview detailing how your organization conforms to the Global Fiduciary Standard of Excellence. Nonprofit leaders use it to help identify and set priorities for fiduciary processes to be addressed, and in some instances, as a preview and preparation for a full CEFEX Assessment for Certification. The written report summarizes your fiduciary practices as well as nonconformities and opportunities to improve. An investment portfolio monitoring report, fee and expense report and Registered Opinion Letter from CEFEX are also included.



CEFEX Assessment of Fiduciary Excellence (CAFE):

Our experienced fiduciaries and CEFEX Analysts help expedite implementation of the Global Fiduciary Standard of Excellence for nonprofits and endowments, whether it be for special projects or for those seeking CEFEX certification. It provides an extensively detailed and comprehensive fiduciary analysis. Successful organizations obtain CEFEX certification, the gold standard of fiduciary excellence. CEFEX-certified nonprofits and endowments undergo annual assessments for recertification to assure the public that they consistently engage the best fiduciary practices. This independent verification of fiduciary excellence helps nonprofits and endowments demonstrate their ongoing trustworthiness to existing and prospective donors, the press and the public. 

Remediation and Brand Building:

If nonconformities or opportunities for improvement are identified, nonprofit leaders may engage a CEFEX Analyst to help them improve and implement Prudent Practices. Once those Prudent Practices have been implemented, the nonprofit is well positioned for CEFEX certification.
