Keys of Successful Fundraising and Capacity Building

Event Details

The share of foreign aid in the national budget was 22% in FY 2017/18, compared to nearly 29% in FY 2016/17. It shows that Nepal now faces the challenge of mobilizing more resources for, inter alia, graduating to the developing country status by 2022, achieving Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, and fulfilling the universally recognized economic, cultural and social rights that are now enshrined as fundamental rights in the Constitution.
I/NGOs are playing crucial roles in Nepal, however financial distress and vulnerability are common for many I/NGOs leaders, with more organizations closing as a result of these financial constraints after 2017.
I/NGOs working in Nepal had also learned a critical lesson about the importance of revenue diversification during the global recession in early 2000 and early 2010. Organizations that were dependent on just one or two funding sources had to fight for their survival. The lesson is age-old: Don’t put all of your funding eggs in one basket.
As resources becoming more limited and demand increases, the topics of how to raise and grow funding sources and sustain a program are of utmost importance. Therefore, I/NGOs have to take concrete and deliberate efforts to diversified revenue stream to mitigate the risk of losing any single source of funding. Considering these challenges, Nepal Center for philanthropy and Development(NCPD) has designed a one day training the “Keys to Fundraising Success and Capacity Building” for the executive level human resource or I/NGOs in Nepal.
