    • Avatar Priyanka says:

      Hi Beenish,

      At this point, we may not be able to say something about donor’s prospect. Please note, donors receive thousands of applications from NGOs around the world and it may not be that easy for them to respond to each one of them. Fundraising is a long and tiring process but feeds us with new learnings and understanding.

      To learn more, please read our article on What does the donor look for in a proposal?
