To create healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous societies, strong partnerships with other donor organizations are essential. IDRC’s Donor Partnerships Division helps develop relationships with research funders and international organizations.
Our partner relationships are critical to building knowledge and local capacity to conduct research and innovate in developing countries around the world. We work closely with funders and donors, in collaboration with our program areas.
Our mandate is to:
- initiate, build, and help maintain long-term relationships with donors
- help develop proposals, and negotiate agreements and financing
- strengthen our grantees’ financial sustainability by enhancing their ability to form
partnerships and mobilize resources
