Who is Your Perfect Donor Match?

The question of eligibility

The question of eligibility

Are you frustrated in your fundraising efforts, because your proposals get rejected? Do you feel like it is impossible to know and understand what a donor really wants to read in a project proposal? Don´t dispair– we have the solution for you. In this online course about the question of eligibility, we help you to find the perfect donor and opportunity for your project and show you how a donor gives you tips and clues in their guidelines to make your proposal shine out of the pile.

Learn everything you need to know about the question of eligibility in this course.

While it seems like common sense that eligibility is important and that NGOs should only apply to opportunities they are eligible for, not paying enough attention to this is actually one of the most common mistakes NGOs make in their fundraising. The donor gives a lot of detailed information about what they want to see in a project proposal in the guidelines, and many NGOs don´t use them in a strategic way to become more successful. With this online course, you can change this and learn how to really understand guidelines and how to find the perfect donor match for your organization.
