Simple and Smart Ways to Raise Start-up Funding for your New NGO

Raising funds for a new NGO is truly challenging. Funding sources and new ideas are rare, and it takes a lot of planning, organizing, collecting, tracking and reporting. It would be more challenging if you establish an NGO without identifying funding avenues.

When you are new to the world, it is evident for the people not to know you. Therefore, it is essential to communicate with other organizations and make contacts. Once you build a relationship with them, it will be easier to get credibility.

Simple and Smart Ways to Raise Start-up Funding for your New NGO

New NGOs particularly face problems in generating funds from large organizations as they prefer to provide financial support to experienced organizations. But this does not mean new NGOs should feel discouraged. There are many agencies which offer programs to provide small and large size grants to new ideas, promising efforts, potential scale-ups, and even new NGOs.

One of the tedious task for new NGOs is to gain the trust of international agencies and to secure small or large funding for projects. It is a must for new NGOs to strategize and implement fundraising plans in the correct path.

This ebook offers you all the technical know-how to be able to kick-start your fundraising efforts for your new NGO. It primarily focuses on providing tips, tools, and techniques of fundraising for new NGOs.
