Fundsforngos.org is making two $500 prizes available in two separate categories:

  2. Proposals successfully submitted by international NGOs, organizations, or networks

Also, the two winning NGOs and an additional ten NGOs will receive free access to a Fundsforngos.org webinar of their choice.

The goal of the contest is to both showcase select proposals to fundsforngos.org users – thereby sharing best practices – as well as increase awareness of fundsforngos.org tools and services amongst NGOs around the world.
