Description: 
This guide was developed by amfAR’s MSM Initiative to provide fundraising assistance to community-based organizations (CBOs) that provide HIV-related programs and services for gay men, transgender individuals, and other men who sex with men (MSM) in low- and middle-income countries. In this guide, a number of key questions are answered: Which donors are funding MSM and other lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community based organizations? Which donors are funding projects in particular geographic areas? What kinds of grants are these donors making? What kinds of programs and projects are being funded by these grants? Whom do I contact and how does my organization apply for funding? The guide offers information about who is funding MSM/LGBT groups, snapshots of what those grant programs look like, how to approach funders, and what projects those grant makers have supported in the past. Since amfAR is based in the U.S. and has more connections to U.S. institutions, the guide includes many U.S.-based funding sources, but also includes donor institutions outside the U.S. This toolkit goes beyond traditional funders, such as private foundations, and offers information and ideas about other organizations that provide funding to, or partner with, MSM/LGBT groups. Finally, the guide offers general tips on fundraising, from networking to proposal writing, and includes templates to help organizations and activists get started.
