Global Charity Trends: Challenges for National Monitoring Organizations

The ICFO conference is hosted by Zewo Foundation, the ICFO member organization from Switzerland.

We focus on global trends in the charity sector and the challenges involved for national monitoring organizations: New fundraising channels based on internet-technology, mobile phones and apps are coming up. At the same time, international NGOs develop fundraising activities in different local markets. More and more charities need to prove that they are transparent and accountable for what they do. What do donors, development agencies and NGOs in this context expect from national monitoring organizations?
