      Hi Kiberu Alfred,

      FundsforNGOs is a social enterprise that provides fundraising guides, resources, and the latest funding opportunities to help you fundraise better and secure grant funding. We are not a funding organization and we do not provide grants.

      Thank you!

    I love the idea and does the blue highlighting on education mean it is a priority area. I run a school and would wish to apply.
