  2. What is your vision, mission, values and operating principles?
  3. What is your passion, skills and expertise?
  4. What region, issues and people do you want to focus on?
  5. What’s the problem and what are the solutions?
  6. What approaches are needed to catalyse the solutions?
  7. What are the types of funding you might give?
  8. Who will you fund?
  9. How are you going to administer your funding
  10. Start funding

Use the Giving Green worksheet (pdf) to help guide you through the steps.
