Bees for Development
A good proposal is the beginning of the road to success in finding funding for your project. The next step is submitting your proposal to appropriate funding organisations.
Selecting a funding organisation
Funding organisations are of many types; large United Nations backed international organisations for example FAO or UNDP, government aid programmes such as DFID (UK), large charities such as Christian Aid, local non-government organizations (NGOs), charities and trust funds. Some commercial organisations and philanthropic individuals are also willing to provide sponsorship.
Nowadays the internet is a very important resource when searching for these funds, as many large organizations have web pages dedicated to their funding opportunities. Below are some examples of such pages. BfD does not take responsibility for the content of the below sites.
