Grant SizeSingle grant requests must be for at least US $25,000. Beyond that requirement, the grant sizes will vary by region. Each region has an allocation of funding and will decide how many and the maximum size grants they will make in their country
Please, do not send unsolicited emails or mail seeking funding support to donor agencies. This will discredit your NGO and can also bring bad reputation to you as an individual as well as a NGO.
Fund raising is a competitive process and you need to follow ethics and not spam donor emails with long, unrelated requests for fund / grant support. If you just keep sending emails seeking support without knowing your donor, your chances of raising funds for your NGO will be drastically reduced and you may be blacklisted as a spammer.
