NCSS is open to funding proposals that support emerging needs. We strongly encourage Agencies with proposals that support other emerging needs to initiate discussions with NCSS on their proposals.
The collaboration with The Majurity Trust involves the co-administration of the Fund with NCSS. They will be assisting with the assessment and other administrative details, such as fund disbursements, outcome and financial reports management. With their expertise and network, we seek to reach out to more partners in the eco-system. As a funder, The Majurity Trust can also fund initiatives that meet their agenda.
