Are you a fundraiser who is looking for ways to diversify funding sources? Do you want to tap into US foundations that you have not taken advantage of until now?
Then this course is just right for you!
Learn how to raise funds from US Foundations!
The USA is the most philanthropic country in the world and can be one of the most rewarding markets for fundraising. The nearly 150,000 foundations in the United States provided almost US$75.69 billion in 2019—a 2.5% increase from 2018. About 25% of this amount is allocated for international causes, of which almost half finds its way to NGOs in other countries.
Despite the recent economic difficulties due to the global pandemic and the heavy competition for US foundation dollars, there are significant opportunities for well-prepared NGOs to raise significant money with the right approach, amount of resources, and investment of time.
