Webinar Video: How to Raise Funds from US Foundations

The Webinar Video on “How to Raise Funds from US Foundations” is now available online.

Broadening the funding sources at present, has become more challenging  for the NGO managers and fundraisers, as sources of funding are numerous, and thus navigation gets complicated. This has caused them to be under more pressure than ever, often getting discouraged by the complexity of donor’s systems ending up with not even applying for those funds.

Unaware and lacking the knowledge of donors’ landscape, the NGO managers unnecessarily waste valuable time and money, trying to learn system’s operations. Raising their awareness about such avenues may increase their efficiency and effectiveness in fundraising campaigns.

This video aims to inform managers and fundraisers on types of funding available to them through an introduction to US Foundations.
