Strategies for Financial Sustainability in NGOs, Transnational and Local:

Perspectives from PRADAN (India) & The Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees (USA)


Wednesday, March 31, 2010 

12:00, Eggers Hall 341


Sustainability is increasingly a hot-button term in the NGO sector, both transnationally and locally.  More specifically, financial sustainability has become a central issue for many NGOs in light of the global financial crisis and related limitations on traditional revenue sources for NGOs. 
The TNGO Initiative and TNGO Student Group will host a workshop on the following questions for financial sustainability in the NGO sector: 
-Under what conditions are self-sustaining fund strategies legal and socially acceptable? 
-How are self-sustaining fund mechanisms working for Pradan (rural development NGO in India) and the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees (refugee assistance in Utica, NY)?
-How are the beneficiaries and communities served involved in managing and governing these self-sustaining fund mechanisms?
-What are the advantages and disadvantages associated with self-sustaining fund strategies?
-What capacity is necessary for the beneficiaries and NGO to implement self-sustaining fund mechanisms?

Shouvik Mitra, Humphrey Fellow in the EMPA program, will present his perspective on financial sustainability from his experience as a Team Leader for PRADAN, an Indian NGO focusing on rural development.   Peter Vogelaar, Executive Director of the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees, will discuss the financial sustainability strategies of MVRCR.
