Challenges and solutions for impact organizations: Discover Sitawi Consulting 

In recent years, Brazil has been facing socio-environmental challenges, accentuated by climate disasters, which increases the challenges of impact organizations. To understand the main issues, we carried out a search with funders in the field, seeking to identify the main obstacles internally and in their supported organizations. 

Carried out between March and April 2024, before the climate tragedy in Rio Grande do Sul, the survey was sent to members of GIFE (Group of Institutes Foundations and Companies) and had 19 respondents. The results indicate that both funders and funded organizations lack budgetary security, prioritizing short-term actions that do not reach their full impact power. On the other hand, transparency was highlighted as the least problem, which is positive in times of crisis.

Although the sample is limited and the results are not surprising, quantifying the challenges is essential. We understand that climate tragedies and others will continue to be repeated, deepening the needs of impact organizations. 

Since its founding, Sitawi has focused on “capital, discipline and mentoring for impact.” Initially, the counseling pillar was the strongest. Over time, Sitawi diversified its operations into “Finance for Good”. For advice, we partnered with another consultancy company.  

Now, after finalizing this partnership and formalizing our Theory of Change, we are resuming our work in this pillar with full force, in addition to ongoing consultancy in other areas, which have never ceased to exist.
