The GFMD MediaDev Fundraising Guide is designed to help anyone seeking funding for media development or journalism support projects.
If your organisation is planning to apply for media development or journalism support funding, the GFMD MediaDev Fundraising Guide is for you.
We hope that the Guide will provide insight into a variety of application models, take you through the project design process, and help you submit better - and ultimately more successful - funding proposals.
Who is the MediaDev Fundraising Guide for?
This Guide is for anyone applying for media development and journalism support funding.
It aims to be comprehensive, and support individuals and organisations making their first applications as well as provide a refresher for more experienced fundraisers.
Obviously, some sections will be more relevant than others depending on the size and nature of your organisation. We are in the process of adding examples and case studies to illustrate how to adapt the guidance depending on your circumstances.
If you feel that your type of organisation has not been properly catered for, or, if you have a case study or insight to contribute, we want to hear from you!
The lexicon provides definitions, context, and examples about how particular programmatic, fundraising, and media development terms are understood by donors and how they should be used and responded to in funding applications and project design.
The GFMD MediaDev Fundraising Guide is a collaborative effort.
GFMD is powered by our 200-strong membership and the commitment of our community to work for the greater good of the sector. In that vein, we appeal to you to work with us to improve the richness and quality of this resource.
