Community strengthening

Any local community-based organization (CBO), non-governmental organization (NGO), or faith-based organization (FBO) that directly engages the project and that has a method to receive funds. A Direct Good Network Facilitator will ensure that you have met the necessary criteria according to the type of project.

  • Applicants must be directly and actively involved with the project (no foreign or outside agencies can apply).
  • Projects must be certified and verified by a Direct Good facilitator.
  • Project creators respond and report directly to their donors.
  • Projects that receive over 100% of their request will be given the extra funds.
  • Community strengthening projects must be volunteer-driven: no salaries can be budgeted.
  • Alternative care sponsorships go directly to caregivers for orphaned, abandoned, or abused children in countries where adequate government support is not accessible.
