Financing and donor management

The world of non-profit financing is more diverse than ever, with new actors, funding schemes and channels available. Though government-led funding has decreased, there is now better opportunity than ever to tap into new funding channels and benefit from innovative private and public-private financing. New solutions include green funds addressing sustainable development and climate change, a wide array of pay-for-result plans, and more flexible funding to pilot innovative approaches.
