Fund sourcing outlook

In terms of the fund sourcing outlook, flows to Northern NGDOs have continued to come from the gift economy, official aid and the market. Gift economy funds come mainly from personal contributions, official aid from both multilateral and bilateral institutions as well as from tax revenues, and market money from corporate support and NGDO enterprise and investment. Likewise, Southern and Eastern NGDOs have continued to receive funds from the Northern NGDOs as well as from all the other sources contributing to the latter.

Official development assistance (ODA) has been generally decreasing. Personal giving has also been declining. Only the flows from the state have been increasing which could be indicative of the softening stance of the NGDOs towards working with government. The market has also continued to offer some good prospects to alternative sustainable financing. Market funds are considered of the highest quality because of their unrestricted nature.
