In recent years, Finn Church Aid (FCA) has been developing partnerships with a range of international donors to strengthen its programmes and enhance its performance towards rights holders.
Establishing the Global Grants unit in November 2011 provided the catalyst to achieving this objective. The unit now has funding staff across the regional offices working closely with programme and thematic experts together with other core units. The Global Grants unit pays special attention to capacity building with FCA’s implementing partners during the project lifecycle of international donor projects, so that the wide-ranging standards are achieved to ensure the sustainability of our actions for rights holders.
In 2015, FCA Global Grants secured an income of 10.2 million EUR (21.6 % of total income).
Engaging with international donors provides FCA with the opportunity to challenge itself and achieve credible results. Our efforts are centred on enabling sound projects in order to grow and reach more rights holders, thereby aspiring for stronger outcomes that can be replicated and celebrated.
