The webinar video on ‘How to Raise Funds from DFID’ is now available online.
The Department for International Development (DFID) in the United Kingdom is a major source of funds and partnership opportunities for NGOs around the world. DFID offers a significant amount of funding resources for NGOs through grant opportunities and requests for applications. Its 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 including difficulty in understanding grant guidelines, compilcated instructions and more.
This entry-level webinar will help NGOs identify and apply to DFID request for applications and grant opportunities.
This video covers:
- 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
