Successful Funding and Grant Application Skills
Some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) at forums for community-based organisations (CBOs)/civil society organizations (CSOs)/non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in developing countries, whatever the subject of the forum is supposed to be, are regarding funding and sustainability.
In addition, the first impulse of many organisations seeking funding is to request the contact information for possible funders, and once received, to write immediately to the potential funders, stressing how desperately money is needed.
Not only does this approach rarely attract funding, it can turn funding organizations against the NGO altogether. Hence, this workshop will provide guidelines regarding fund-raising, and to point to other resources for further information.
