An Overview of Major Donor Organizations Currently Providing International Population Assistance
Multilateral and bilateral organizations are the major channels for international population assistance. Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), while often dependent on the resources of these organizations, may also receive funds directly from donor countries and from private philanthropic foundations. For example, an NGO such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) may, after covering its own administrative costs, serve as a pass-through to its affiliates for donor funds it has received. Embassies of foreign donor countries may sometimes provide funds to recipient-country NG0s, but most donors prefer to vet and channel requests through NGOs in their own countries. With the rising importance of private philanthropic foundations for international population assistance, expanded partnerships with NGOs appear to be in the offing. Another route for philanthropic funds is the United Nations Foundation, which provides an entrée for donors to population activities in the UN system.
