Mobilization of Funds for NGOs


The growth of non-governmental organizations is directly proportional to the capacity of their main staff to mobilize funding, This means that organizations will not become effective unless it establishes a mechanism to mobilize funding, in which of sources of funding vary, and ways of its sustainability.


Therefore, Non-governmental organizations must be planning to mobilize funding from the first day of the establishment because the mobilization of funding for organizations is as the product produced by the plant, as for the mobilization of resources it is the most difficult step in the lives of founders and organizations leaders anywhere, and at any time.


There are so many ways that organizations follow to in mobilizing funding, simplest and easiest are donations from their founding members and persuading other group of traders to support some of their activities and this support is usually associated with religious events, such as feed the fasting, clothing for the Eid festival and the distribution of sacrificial meat or seasonal activities such as supporting the distribution of school bags at the beginning of each school year and distribution of winter clothes.


Unfortunately, the support for these events is not sufficient because it is conditional on the same events and covers temporary needs.

The nature of these activities doesn’t help organizations in continuity and growth, because they aren’t real projects but only sporadic activities.


Although the charitable nature of these contributions makes them not bound by specific agreements or budgets and conditions of expenditure, they are also convenient to implement. But it doesn’t force these organizations to follow the procedures, standards, implementation plans, follow-up, evaluation and activation of the complaints mechanism nor to collect lessons learned thereby reducing the learning opportunities of organizations that rely on this type of funding. Therefore, we find that they continue in the same routine pattern and non-competitive management style.
