Selected for a Grant from Global Kroll Charitable Foundation

PSYDEH expands its corporate partnerships to include the global governance, risk, and transparency advisory firm Kroll.

In late-2020, the Kroll Charitable Foundation Committee (then called Duff & Phelps), the giving arm of the firm, selected PSYDEH as one of 22 eligible charities across the globe to receive a pool of grants and volunteer labor. Kroll employees then voted on the amount to be donated to each organization, with the goal of assisting each organization to achieve their environmental, social, and governance goals. PSYDEH is awarded USD $11,000, the only nonprofit chosen from Mexico.

COVID-19 is not kind to the Americas. Ongoing cuts by the Mexican government in funding and support for civil society, complicate matters further. PSYDEH adapts thanks to its seven-resource stream strategy put in place a few years back. The Kroll Charitable Foundation’s grant marks another benchmark in executing this plan. Damon Taylor, PSYDEH’s senior advisor, states,

“PSYDEH’s can-do ethos and volunteer orientation is our DNA; it’s how we have grown over the years and will continue to be a pillar of our work. But, there are limits to what is possible with volunteers without proper funds. We’re therefore thrilled that Kroll chooses to invest in our work and especially excited that they view the investment as the beginning of a multi-year win-win partnership.”

Kroll’s donation helps PSYDEH kick off a multi-pronged 2021-2022 program strengthening indigenous women and their organizations as problem-solvers during/post the pandemic, including by producing micro-economic projects pursuant to local demands.

The Kroll Foundation was established in 2018 to nurture innovative ideas, impact economic and social issues, and enable progress in underserved communities around the globe. The Charitable Foundation Committee selects eligible charities and employees to vote on the amount to be donated as grants and volunteerism to assist these organizations in achieving Environmental, Social, and Governance goals. Since its inception in 2018, the foundation has donated over USD 1.25 million to charities worldwide.
