Webinar Video: How to Raise Funds from DFID

The Webinar Video on “How to Raise Funds from DFID” is now available online for FundsforNGOs Premium Members.

The Department for International Development (DFID) in the United Kingdom is a major source of funds and partnership opportunities for NGOs around the world. DFID offers a significant amount of funding resources for NGOs through grant opportunities and requests for applications. DFID ‘s funding resources support a wide range of issues areas: education, health, poverty reduction, the environment, water and sanitation.

Despite this, many NGOs often do not apply for funding with DFID because of the complexity and highly competitive nature of the DFID grant system. The funding guidelines can be difficult to understand, instructions are complicated, and the application form can be difficult to follow. But this should not deter NGOs from trying. With some time and effort, it is possible to understand the grant system and apply for DFID grants successfully.

This video will help NGOs find answers regarding DFID funding programmes based on their priorities, application processes and requirements.
