Fundraising Basics: 3 - Government


In most countries, the biggest 'donor' worldwide is government. Local, Federal/National, International, EU, UN etc.

Whatever you are doing, research whether you want, and whether you can get, government money. Here are some development examples.

Canadian International Development Agency
The Swedish International Development Corporation Agency's (SIDA)
Norad (Norway)
Finland's Ministry for Foreign Affairs Development Cooperation
Irish Aid
Ausaid (Australia)
UN Development Program

There are very likely to be local funding opportunities from your own Government too - but try and use your imagination to go beyond the obvious.
