For local NPOs, the Fund provides a level of support that was previously missing in Vietnam:

  • A regular source of funding. With grants offered up to 3 times each year NPOs have time to plan and prepare proposals
  • Investing in the capacity of NPOs and their staff. If NPO staff do their jobs better, the people they serve will reap the benefits
  • Offering transparency in expectations. Clear eligibility criteria, reporting guidelines, and consultations to applicants ensures that good ideas can be realized
  • Connecting NPOs to other donors. By engaging many different people in the process, NPOs have access to a broad network of prospective donors and volunteers.
