3. The context for this question is that some NGOs have recurring annual events, of roughly the same scope from year to year.  What are your thoughts on multi-year funding structures for this scenario? In other words, instead of the NGO applying for 1, 2, 3 or more sources of funding for the recurring event each year, with all the labour and resources associated with that application, the NGO could make an application for funding that spans more than one year for the same recurring event.  The expected result is that the NGO frees up resources between application years to focus more on its core deliverables
