The access to all TripleMinds webinars provides you with a good and solid overview of the application procedures and instruments of various donors for development cooperation. It includes the most important and biggest public or government donors such as USAID (US Department for International Development), DFID (Department for International Development) and EC (European Commission). These are important donors for NGOs from across the world as they are the main public donors for this sector. Knowing how to successfully apply to them is crucial for securing development and humanitarian funding.

On the other hand, the webinars explore how to access funds from foundations as this is a growing segment of the international donor landscape. We mainly look at European foundations with a focus on German and Swiss foundations but also explore basic underlying rules for writing an outstanding case of support which can be applied to any foundation worldwide.
