Preface

The NGORC Donor Directory collects and disseminates information about donors that are providing financial and other
assistance to the non-governmental sector in Pakistan. This is the third edition following releases in 1994 and 1998.

This edition reveals some interesting new trends. International private foundations appear for the first time. Indigenous
foundations are also gearing up their efforts. Many of these prefer to retain their anonymity, however, and discourage
publicity of any sort. NGORC is engaging with these publicity shy grant makers to encourage them to recognize that through a
more transparent style they will increase their effectiveness. Pakistan’s corporate sector is also poised to divert more and more
funds towards social development.

I would like to thank all those that have participated in putting together this directory for taking time to fill the questionnaire
and helping make the directory a useful publication. I would like to put on record the work done by Mr. Mohammad Anwar,
Research Assistant, towards collection and processing of data, Ms. Rabia Baig, Manager Information and Research for leading
the study, and Ms. Kamyla Marvi Tapal for writing the overview of the donor sector in Pakistan.

I sincerely hope that the citizen sector and other stakeholders would find this humble effort of NGORC useful and relevant.
We are optimistic that this small initiative will go a long way to promote a productive relationship between NGOs and donors
for sustainable development in Pakistan.

Introduction

NGO Resource Centre is a non-funding support organization that provides management education related services to build
capacity of citizen organizations. On the basis of credible data on the citizen sector, it undertakes policy dialogue to promote an
enabling policy environment. The objective of the NGO Resource Centre is to (a) enhance capacity and professionalism in citizen
organizations of Pakistan and (b) promote an enabling policy environment for private voluntary initiative in the public interest.

For accurate and authentic collection and dissemination of information, NGORC develops directories on themes relevant to the
citizen sector. Over the years NGORC has produced directories of Donor Organizations (this version being an update),
Intermediary NGOs, Training Organizations for the Citizen Sector and Social Research Organizations in Pakistan. Earlier the
Centre conducted a census of NGOs registered with the Social Welfare Department.

This directory encompasses five kinds of donors – namely bilaterals, multilaterals, embassies and high commissions,
international/ local private foundations and the corporate sector. This updated version of the directory also includes an overview
of the donor sector in Pakistan as important partners in development.

Annex II offers tips on how to contact donors and a specimen of project proposal form (Annexure III).

Methodology
The first step towards the compilation of this directory was to update the list of donors. The earlier list of donors available with
NGORC was revised and enhanced. Based on the information collected in the earlier directories, a questionnaire (Annex IV) was
prepared to elicit the required ‘organizational’ and ‘procedural’ information from relevant donors. The questionnaire was pre-
tested with two potential donors in order to ensure clarity of thought and clear understanding of the tool.

In August 2002, the questionnaires along with introductory letters were sent out to the 102 organizations in the list (Annex I).
Data collection (via mail and email) and data entry continued through the months of September and October 2002. Of the 102
organizations contacted fifty-two responded within the stipulated time. Information sent to NGORC was transferred to templates
and sent back to respective organizations for verification. By November, the data had been verified, processed and statistical
tables had been generated. Soon after, the first draft of the report was ready along with the article on Partners in Development: An
overview of donor funding to NGOs in Pakistan.

viii
Limitations
The recent developments in Afghanistan and its repercussions on the international and national scenario had lead many donor
organizations to temporarily suspend non-essential activities. It was for this reason that the donor directory project was
postponed till later in the year 2002. Also most international foundations were difficult to locate as they did not have local offices;
however correspondence was managed through email.

Indigenous donors – both private foundations and corporations - were also not easy to reach. Some craved anonymity and others
were not able to furnish the required information.

Data collection is always a daunting task. Often for participating organizations, it is not easy to visualize the benefits of partaking
in surveys and therefore have to be cajoled and ‘nudged’. This often involves intense follow-up.

Definition of Terminologies
Technically a ‘donor’ is an institution or person who donates resources to another individual or institution. The resources that are
donated may be financial, physical, technical, material or human. In the development sector, donors are often institutions that
provide monetary grants or aid to government and NGOs1.

In Pakistan’s social development context, the term ‘donor’ usually means a foreign bilateral or multilateral agency, UN agency,
international NGO or the Banks. It does not usually refer to indigenous philanthropic organizations, corporate sector donors or
individual donors. However, in the broader sense these do constitute ‘donor’.

For the purpose of this study, a donor is defined as “an organization, government or private funding projects or organizations of
the citizen sector in Pakistan, through which the people of Pakistan directly or indirectly benefit. Furthermore these must have a
commitment towards funding social development (as opposed to welfare, relief and charity) and future plans to continue doing
so.

Partners in Development
An Overview of the Donor Funding to NGOs in Pakistan

Over the last decade or so international donor agencies have increasingly given greater prominence to the role of NGOs in social
welfare and development of the civil society. This prominence has not only been in the form of greater financial amounts being
given in grants to NGOs but also as a proportion of the total aid given to countries.

This increase in funding both in real and relative terms has seen a substantial growth of NGOs all over the world and especially in
the developing nations of the South. Pakistan too, which has a relatively young NGO sector has seen growth in the number of
NGOs over the last decade. Today, over three hundred intermediary organizations provide social services through a network of
grassroots, and many more local community-based organizations (CBOs) are working to address basic social needs at the
community level. According to the SPDC/JHU/AKF Report of April, 2002 there are almost 45,000 active organizations in the non-
profit sector. These organizations vary greatly in terms of their size, competence, and transparency, focus and impact. They
address a varying range of issues from education, income generation, micro-finance, irrigation, and health, to democracy and
rights.

Similarly the last decade and a half has also seen an increase in the number of donors in Pakistan. Over 50 percent of the donors in
this directory have begun operating in Pakistan after 1980 and now a number of UN agencies, CIDA have offices and staff based
in Islamabad. This local presence enables them to better understand the local scenario as well as more easily interact with their
recipient partners. Yet with increasing possibilities through the Internet to develop relationships many donors, small and large
provide funds to Pakistan without being based in the country. Examples of such are the Packard Foundation, the Ford Foundation
and the Bill Gates Foundation.

Who do Donors Fund?


A review of the mission statements of donors (included in the directory) suggests some common threads. All donors state
philanthropic reasons for their support, most of them emphasizing poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Many also
identify improvement in the lives of vulnerable groups such as women and children. In this directory 87 percent of the donors are
working for women, 73 percent for low-income groups and 69 percent for children.

Many reasons are cited for why donors provide support to NGOs: the donor–NGO relationship is a mutually beneficial one. In
fact the reasons may be as many as the donors; Some common cited include:

x
• Governments as well as civil society organizations in the donor countries feel a social responsibility towards the developing
countries. Colonialism is seen as being a reason for the North-South divide and many seek to redress this balance through
assistance and aid. Those providing support targeted at vulnerable groups such as children and women increasingly see
NGOs as being more efficient, cost-effective, better able to hit the target of vulnerable groups.

• With increasing globalization most countries of the North have developed strong commercial interests in the South. The South
not only provides them with potential human and natural resources but also potentially expansive markets. A strong civil
society can bring about a stable environment for business. In addition a developing nation will provide a market with greater
purchasing power.

• Through development sector relationships, the North increases its understanding of the South which advances its
geographical outreach.

• The North has a political and ideological commitment to democracy. More and more so, development ideals such as
participation, equality, empowerment, and good governance are being promoted. Moreover, there is an increasing trend
towards supporting advocacy within the civil sector.

The Donors – An Overview


It must be remembered however that donors, like NGOs are not homogenous in nature and consists of various different types of
organizations - from vast multilateral donors consisting of substantial funds from several member countries such as the World
Bank and the Asian Development Bank - to embassies like the Dutch, the British, and the Norwegian that have projects funds
usually for innovative activities executed by NGOs. International NGOs also contribute substantial amounts of financial support
to local NGOs and unlike multilateral and government funding agencies, seldom provide assistance to governments.

International philanthropic foundations such as the Ford Foundation and the David and Lucille Packard Foundation are also
extending upon the tradition of philanthropy from the private to the social sector and are increasingly contributing vast sums of
money towards philanthropy in the South.

While local philanthropy is also a potentially vast source of resources for NGOs it remains largely based on individual initiatives,
and is only beginning to get organized in the sense of organized philanthropy in the North. Yet some local donors such as the
Rangoonwala Fund and the Infaaq Foundation do provide funds to CBOs. Corporations such as Unilever Pakistan Ltd, Engro and
Shell and business association such as the Rotary and Lions, and the German and British Women’s Associations also provide
funds to smaller NGO initiatives.

xi
Funding amounts vary depending upon the donor policies and the capacity of the NGO to utilize funds. NGOs having a sound
track record and an effective organizational structure with proper accounting, monitoring and evaluation systems in place are
more likely to receive larger and repeated grants. NGOs that are able to show the effectiveness of their programs are also more
likely to receive grants. Yet many donors have windows with small grants for organizations just starting out. Similarly different
donors have different policies on whether or not they will support an NGO beyond one project cycle. Some donors prefer to work
with seed grants encouraging recipients to find alternative sources of funding, while other donor-NGO partnerships tend to be
longer term with an emphasis on organizational development and institution building.

Sometimes donors also provide loans to NGOs. This is particularly so within the micro finance sector. Recently the World Bank
and the Asian Development Bank provided a loan to the Khushali Bank so that they in turn could provide small-scale loans for
the development of micro-enterprise. Similarly the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) set up by the Government of
Pakistan in partnership with the World Bank, extend loans to NGOs. These loans are often given in conjunction with grants that
support capacity building of partner NGOs.

Apart from financial support, donors also provide technical assistance through provision of expertise in special areas,
contribution in kind (vehicles, buildings, machinery etc.) and providing capacity-building opportunities to recipient
organizations. These may come as part of the financial assistance package or may be requested for separately from the donors. For
example UNAIDS will often provide support for members of NGOs working within the HIV/AIDS sector to attend international
conferences.

The donors are increasingly becoming more stringent on monitoring and evaluation. This can range from the submission of
reports by the NGOs, to ‘missions’ (visits) by the donors to the project area to see the utilization of the grant money or to more
extensive evaluation missions where programs and projects are evaluated by external evaluators. Donors too have at times played
an active role in advocating an enabling environment for NGOs as in their advocacy efforts against the NGO Bill in 1996. Similarly
the Country Assistance Strategies of the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank have encouraged participation of
stakeholders during the strategy formulation process.

So what is the role of the state within this NGO-donor relationship? The state plays an important role in the creation of an
enabling environment for the civil society. In addition, the government provides benefits (such as tax or customs duties
exemptions) to NGOs. On the other hand, International donors, based in Pakistan, do sign protocols/ Memorandum of
Understanding with the government and when they give funds to an NGO they are required to inform the Economic Affairs
Division (EAD).

xii
Operating partnership combing donor, NGO and government are also becoming more common. Donors finance the relationship
so that the government and the NGO can derive mutual benefits. Donors sometimes provide money to the government or to
credible NGOs to set up social investment funds, which then provides financial and technical support to other NGOs. Two
examples of such social investment funds are of CIDA providing money to the Aga Khan Foundation for Pakistan Social
Institutions Development Programme (PAKSID), and of USAID who provided an endowment for Trust for Voluntary
Organizations (TVO).

Changing Priorities
Most donors have their own sectoral and geographical preferences (please see thematic matrix on page xii). Over the years,
development ideologies and priority areas continue to change and adapt. Development funding has moved from a more
charitable approach, to one that aimed at economic betterment to more recently, an approach that promotes empowerment. So,
for example, work with women has moved from a ‘include’ women-in-development approach to one of gender empowerment
which focuses on promoting gender equality. Population reduction theories and strategies have shifted their focus to family
planning, to now a wider and more empowering reproductive health approach. Donors not only change their priority areas but
also how much they will give and their preferences for partnership (directly to NGOs or through government, long term or small
projects). Sometimes donors will entirely close down their program in one country while new donors are always coming in to
identify new areas of support.

There are multiple reasons for these changes. Always, to some measure donor country foreign policy affects its development aid.
Thus the Labour government in the UK saw a substantial increase in grants to developing countries, while the present American
government’s policies regarding organizations who provide abortion services has seen a substantial decrease in funds to many
reproductive health organizations. The donor’s changing financial or economic status also affects their ability to fund. Following
11th September, corporate sector donors whose stock values fell had to reduce the amount that they were able to commit in the
future. International conferences such as the conference on sustainable development in South Africa influence and shape
development agendas and governments and donors make commitments which they later strive to meet. Southern countries are
increasingly beginning to effectively mobilize and lobby donor agencies towards the agendas of the South. Thus, for example, the
International Forum for Capacity Building aims to provide greater voice to NGOs to negotiate with donors.

Recipient country politics also influence donor funding policies and procedures. Donors sometimes use funds as political leverage
and increase and withdraw assistance to influence policies of the government of the time. Following the testing of nuclear
weapons in Pakistan in 1998, the donor community came down strong on the funds that were not only being provided to the
Government but also to NGOs. Finally, international tools for monitoring development such as the Human Development Index
and other social indicators too influence which fields a donor will prioritize. Similarly donors will often commission in-country
research or needs assessments to assess new strategic directions.

xiii
The NGO – Donor Relationship – A Critique
Without the substantial funds that have been received by NGOs from donors it would perhaps have been impossible for NGOs to
become providers of social and economic services on the scale they do. There is no doubt that donor funding sometimes does
allow NGOs to work on issues which are at times not prioritized on the domestic agenda. The vulnerable are often marginalized
when there are so many conflicting demands on limited resources. Foreign funding can give voice to interest groups who
otherwise would be stifled in a closed political environment. NGOs also tend to prefer raising funds from international donors
because they are better organized through a systematic approach to facilitate the relationship (69 percent of the donors within this
directory state that they have specific guidelines and forms).

But the NGO-donor sector has its weaknesses and both must be aware of their limitations so that both strive to continually
improve. There is no doubt that while international donor agencies can be strong proponents of transparency and democracy,
sometimes their own systems can be inflexible and not entirely transparent. What is right for the recipient of aid must be right for
the donor. Donors must meet the standards of performance that they expect recipient governments or organizations to achieve.

International agencies have a tendency to support projects rather then programs, which makes it very difficult for NGOs to
maintain and build upon their human expertise over time or for them to secure their administrative costs. This weakens
institutional learning as well as the NGOs chances for institutional growth over the long term. Official funding compromises the
performance of NGOs in development activities such as institutional development and advocacy that require long-term strategies
with few short-term outputs.

Donor agencies are sometimes criticized for policies that in reality only serve the economic interests of their own countries. Thus
policies which only allow for vehicles to be imported from specified countries or technical assistance to be secured from
consultants of specified countries may not be the most effective way to meet the local needs as they may cause delays and other
complications.

Several successful NGO initiatives have suffered because of their over-dependence on foreign donor support. The NGO
community and development sector in general has not yet been able to tap into the vast financial and voluntary resources
available within the local communities. This is especially the case in Pakistan where recent studies by the Aga Khan Development
Network (AKDN) show that during 1997-8 Pakistani’s gave Rs. 30 billion in money alone, for philanthropic purposes. This is 5
times more than Pakistan received in outright grants from foreign aid. The NGO sector must become better adept at including
local philanthropists into the NGO-donor partnership. It is in this way that we will move towards greater self-reliance and
sustainability. Therefore, it is essential for NGOs to diversify their sources of funding not only between different donors but also
between different types of donor.

xiv
The acceptance of increasing amounts of donor funds, which usually come with complex requirements for project appraisal,
reporting, evaluation and accounting, presents even larger NGOs with difficulties. This official funding and its requirements can
sometimes skew the accountability of NGOs away from grassroots and other internal constituencies.

Donor agencies usually are convinced to support development NGOs, as they can reach people and places that governments often
cannot and their bottom-up approach helps communities to express their needs and use their own abilities. However, many
governments in developing countries feel that with the vast amounts of aid money flowing through NGOs, these organizations
are becoming competitors to what would normally be government’s responsibilities. NGOs often, rather than addressing these
legitimate fears - usually respond by being very critical of the government. For the future development of the country, it is
imperative that the NGO-government relationships improve so that they are partners in development rather then competitors for
resources.

Finally the NGO sector must realize its own social responsibility. With the changing political scenarios in the world, international
agencies cannot be seen as an unending source of funds, nor must the sector fall into the trap that it is only the international
donors to whom they are accountable. The NGO sector is ultimately responsible for the impact of its work. It must change lives, it
must contribute towards changing the future of our country and it must be driven by vision. We must build upon the windows of
opportunity that external and local donors provide us today so that tomorrow we are able to do the same for others.

Within the overall framework of the EU’s assistance programmes, a clear distinction is to be drawn between Economic Cooperation and
Development Cooperation. Development Cooperation consists of grant aid from the Union to its partners, directed towards poverty
alleviation, the fight against illiteracy, the improvement of health standards and the promotion of human rights. Economic cooperation on the
other hand aims at developing partnerships between the private sectors of the EU and its partners for the mutual benefit of the participating
parties.

Building Linkages with Donors


Some Tips

Searching for the Right Donors

1. A diversity of income sources is the best way to become financially independent. Due to their non-profit status, many NGOs
may not immediately be in the position to generate enough income to allow them to decrease their dependence on external funding,
however costrecovery, volunteerism and money derived from private donations, for example, can be an important source of revenue.
When drawing out a financial plan, consider alternative options to international donors. An ability to find some portion of funding
through alternative sources will always strengthen your chances of raising funds with international donors.

2. Do not place all you eggs in one basket. There are several international donors from different levels and with different policies. Diversify
your donor base and invest time in building relationships with more than one donor at a time. Spread your risks and build a more stable
financial base. This way if one donors policies change or they are no longer willing to provide funds then you have other partnerships to
rely on. At the same time working with too many donors can be time consuming and difficult to manage.

3. Identifying and even contacting donors does not necessarily have to wait for the completion of the proposal. You can start identifying
donors as soon as the initial design, or the basic idea, is complete. The first stage in identifying a donor is to find out about as many
agencies as possible that might have an interest in funding your project, especially those donors that have funded similar projects to
yours. Understand the donors requirements and their priority interests before approaching them with concept papers or proposals. Most
donors have web sites or information materials describing their sectoral interests and priorities. This directory also aids you to identify the
areas of interest of donors.

4. Get donors to appreciate and understand your strategic choices rather then developing proposals aiming to appease donors and their
priorities.

5. Allow for time. It is not easy to generate funds. Raising funds for small projects can take 6 to 8 months and for larger projects (of 3 to 5
years duration) over a year. It may be better to approach a donor with a one-year proposal, establish links and a rapport and then apply
for a longer-term proposal.

Annex II

Building Linkages with Donors


Some Tips

Submitting Proposals

6. NGOs need to invest more in their own organizational development. This means more attention to research, learning, monitoring and
evaluation, so that the all-important link between performance measurement and accountability can be strengthened. Above all, it means
be clear about the over all direction of the organization and its function in society. Do not develop and raise funds for projects which are
devoid of a larger programmatic goal.

7. Some donors (especially larger ones) do prefer submission of concept papers that can save time for all parties. Find out if the agency
would be interested in a short (2-5 page) concept paper before submitting a detailed proposal.

8. Before making an application do read the donors requirements thoroughly and ensure that all are met through your application. Donors
often reject proposals because they are incomplete. Before sending the proposal double check to ensure full compliance with the donor’s
requirements.

9. Be specific and to the point in your communication with donors. When few sentences will suffice, do not write a page.

10. Once you have submitted your proposal do try and identify a contact persons and follow up periodically with them. However respect the
donor’s procedures and norms.

Once the Proposal has been accepted

11. Wait for final approval of the grant, in writing, before embarking upon project activities.

12. Do not hesitate to negotiate the terms of the contracts. You are developing a partnership, the terms of which may be adjusted by
both partners upon mutual agreement. One example of this is if there are multiple donors funding a programme then often joint
reporting on the whole program, may be acceptable to the donors.

13. Develop written contracts. This ensures that there is a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of both partners. Most donors
have standardized contracts or letters of agreement. Ensure that any adjustments that are made are done so in writing and approved by
both parties.

14. Once a proposal has been accepted be fully aware and mindful of your obligations/ responsibilities. Ensure that contractual obligations
are fully met. Your reputation with one donor is often communicated to others and your ability to perform and your effectiveness is the
best way of increasing your chances for future funding. Work hard at demonstrating credibility and maintaining trust.
159
Annex II

Building Linkages with Donors


Some Tips

15. Be transparent. If savings are made in one sphere, request your donor to adjust budget lines elsewhere. If you have money left over
then request no cost extensions. If you do not conduct certain activities explain why, and suggest alternative courses of action. Do
not try and make such adjustments on your own without written approval from the donor.
