How to donate


Thank you for your interest in supporting the work of the Global Forum for Media Development (GFMD).

Our commitment is to make media development an integral part of international development strategies, just like education or health. One of the best ways you can make a difference is to make a financial donation to our work.

You may choose to donate to one of our major field activities, or to make a general "unmarked" donation to the GFMD Secretariat.

GFMD activities are:

  • Advocacy: The GFMD advocates for increased understanding, recognition and importance of media development among international donors and development communities.
  • Information Sharing: The GFMD elevates the effectiveness and status of media development by sharing best practices, highlighting impact and providing forums for discussion and debate of important issues in our field.
  • Research: The GFMD promotes and disseminates research and analysis on the impact of media on development policies. We also encourage the evaluation of media development work as a way to identify and advance best practices, methods and technologies. 
  • Coordination: The GFMD improves the media development field by encouraging collaboration, thereby avoiding duplication, setting strategic priorities and highlighting important media development programs and technologies.

Once again, thank you for your support.
