Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Description:

Annually, US foundations grant 3 to 4 billion dollars internationally: to non-American nonprofits, all over the world. Over the past 13 years, nonprofits based in Israel received almost one billion USD in international grants. Why? Which ones, and for which projects?
Continuously updated data about this market is available. Because of the abundance of these statistics, this market can and must be analyzed before being targeted in a strategic way. However, one also needs the story behind the numbers in order to understand this non-googleable world.
This session is instrumental to nonprofits working in the international development, academic/educational, environment, health and arts sector.
