The cornerstone of the Global Funding & Partnership Community is the funding portal.

By joining you’ll receive access to international development funding announcements ranging from $100,000 to $5 million and from large funders such as the Gates Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, and USAID to lesser known foundation, private and innovation funders.

In addition to the funding opportunities posted, you’ll also receive access to:

  • Real-time donor intelligence giving your organization a competitive edge for funding and reducing the time spent searching across funding boards. 
  • Monthly donor Q&A calls, increasing transparency in the philanthropy sector and allowing you to better understand and respond to real-time donor priorities. 
  • A discrete space to engage with peers and explore partnership opportunities through the membership directory, quarterly meet-ups, as well as a feed to ask questions, ideate, and post ideas for consideration and action.
  • Funding and partnership development strategy recommendations via monthly office hours.
