In these challenging times, NGO managers and fundraisers are under more pressure than ever to diversify their funding sources. While sources of funding are numerous, identifying viable prospects, and navigating the complexities of applying can be extremely challenging. As a consequence numerous sources are overlooked and NGOs get often discouraged by the complexity of donor’s systems ending up with not even applying for those funds.
While managers of NGOs may accurately realize the importance of fundraising, without thorough knowledge of the donors’ landscape they waste valuable time and money figuring out how the system works. Increased understanding of these different avenues however, can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of fundraising campaigns. This interactive web-based online seminar (also referred to as “webinar”) aims to inform managers and fundraisers on types of funding available to them through an introduction to US Foundations.
