Webinar Video: How to Raise Funds from DFID

The webinar video on “How to Raise Funds from DFID” is now available online.

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 identify and apply to DFID request for applications and grant opportunities.

Topics Covered

  • DFID Geographic Landscape: Geographic priorities, Issue Sectors and Financial Instruments & Eligibility
  • How to Participate: Information sources for upcoming calls for proposals
  • The Application Process: The Request for Application Process & the Basic overview on developing the Letter of Interest (LOI), Budget and Full Grant Application.
