There are hundreds of Foundations and donor agencies supporting the NGOs efforts towards different issues for an equitable society. Applying to trusts and foundations is largely about demonstrating how your particular project can help them achieve their purpose. In any process of fundraising, it is important to understand that not every donor will fund your cause. There can be thousands of donor agencies but only a few them would really be interested in listening to your project idea. Only right information can help you identify such donors and raise funds from them.
