Women Thrive Worldwide Fundraising Guide

Women Thrive Worldwide is proud to announce the release of its Fundraising Guide for Women’s Community-Based Organizations. 

Women Thrive Worldwide believes that the best way to fight global poverty is by investing in local women’s groups in the developing world. Why? Because these groups best know their communities’ problems and how to solve them. This is why we work with women’s groups around the world to make sure U.S. assistance is reaching them and addressing the priorities and needs of the women they work with.

However, we frequently notice that local organizations have difficulty navigating the often complex world of international assistance and fundraising. This guide was written to help bridge that gap. Outlining the basic concepts of professional fundraising, the guide seeks to assist our community partners through a collaborative process to increase access to effective resources. From practical advice based on years of experience in professional fundraising in the United States to detailed instructions on how to write grant proposals, budgets and reports, the principles and methods we introduce are applicable globally and can be tailored to local environments.

Just working on a project to target women's book clubs/groups to help raise funds for women/girls worldwide. This will be a very useful resource to which we can point these groups.
