This article aims to define strategies for International Non Government Organizations (INGOs) in finding new channels for funding from the newer member of the European Union (EU). A great number of former communist European countries have joined the European Union in the period between 2004-2007, officially gaining membership status to the "developed" countries club.

This report reflects the results of a small-scale survey conducted to gain insight into whether NGOs worldwide were reaping benefits from cross-border fundraising.

We asked about their future fundraising plans, and how they would allocate any additional resources to increase their fundraising capacity.
