There are many opportunities for various NGOs to raise funds and associate with multiple
prestigious projects supported by union and state governments, CSR, UN bodies, NABARD,
academic institutions, etc. In addition to these, several philanthropic organizations in India
and abroad support different developmental initiatives.
 
‘Accessing’ these options is a critical challenge to the bulk of the NGOs in the nation. The
NGOs operating at the ground level are unable to appreciate these opportunities and means to
submit their credentials for the same. Many of them do hardly have the requisite resources to
identify and then draft a proposal for the donors’ consideration.
 
We at IDEA intend to fill this gap.
