Fundraising Analysis:

In 2010, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) International decided to develop a fundraising setup to raise funds in India for short term and long term to support MSF projects outside India. The initial analysis (in 2011) had set very high expectations for fundraising, but the expectations were not based on the actual growth. MSF India wanted to prepare a fundraising analysis to be presented to MSF International to finalize future projections.
