ProposalsforNGOs began as a partnership between fundsforNGOs and Volunteers Initiative Nepal. The idea for ProposalsforNGOs came out of discussions of what grassroots NGOs need to thrive and what we can do to reach more NGOs with capacity building resources.
ProposalsforNGOs believes that local and grassroots NGOs can be productive, positive forces for change in the world if they have access to tools and knowledge to apply themselves and gain resources. Our mission is to reach these NGOs and connect them with expert advice on proposal writing to get their amazing projects funded.
ProposalsforNGOs is NOT a funding organization, nor are we a proposal writing organization. We do not provide grants, we do not fundraise, we do not write proposals, we do not connect NGOs to proposal writers. What we do is provide the resources NGOs need to build long-term internal capacity to provide these services for themselves. Proposal writing is a skill most NGOs will need throughout the entire institutional lifetime of the NGO, so it is important to build these skills early and keep them within the organization.
About Our Partners
FundsforNGOs is a social enterprise and online initiative with the goal of increasing the sustainability of NGOs across the world. We accomplish this by providing online resources for NGOs to increase their awareness and access to donors, resources, and skills. We use technology to spread knowledge from our experienced fundraising experts to NGOs around the world and increase their capacity.
