Fundsforngos Small Grant: Submit Your Best Proposal and Win a Grant

Deadline: 30 November 2013

Fundsforngos is accepting entries for the “Great Proposals” Contest 2013. This contest is open for local NGOs, international organizations and networks. The contest is simple and quick to participate. You only need to fill out a small application form and submit any of your previous proposal that has led to a successful grant.

There are two prizes of $500 each which will be given to NGOs or networks who have successfully submitted proposals by developing country NGOs or networks and by international NGOs, organizations, or networks. In addition to the winners, ten organizations will be selected for receiving free participation in a Fundsforngos webinar of their choice.

The goal of the contest is to both showcase select proposals to Fundsforngos users – thereby sharing best practices – as well as increase awareness of Fundsforngos tools and services amongst NGOs around the world.

Only proposals that led to funding of $1000 or more in the last 5 years from a government agency, foundation, company, or other organization (e.g. the UN or EC) are eligible for submission.
