WHAT you will get:
You will receive the following documents:
Your donor mapping document with an overview of the chosen donors
The donor mapping is a PDF document where the selected donors are listed. Each donor is described on one page and the following details are provided:
– website (URL of donor)
– contact details (address and name of contact person)
– thematic focus (overview of priority sectors of donor)
– countries (countries where the donor is active and has funded projects already)
– grant sizes
– application procedure (information about application process)
– special remarks (on suitability with your project/program if available)
Additionally, we describe the methodology and approach applied for the mapping, we draw conclusions from the mapping, we explain the funding cycle and the recommended next steps.
A ranking template where you can rank the donors according to your internal criteria
This template will serve you well to rank and prioritise your donors after you have received our mapping document. You may chose your own internal criteria (e.g. donor location, funding volumes, etc.) and rank the donors accordingly.
The template is an Excel document containing the following sections:
– name of donor and website
– countries (drop-down menu)-
– focus areas/sectors (drop-down menu)
– application information
– prospect rating (drop-down menu low to medium)
– notes and action to be taken
A proposal submission work plan template as to develop who/where/when submits what
The next step in your fundraising cycle is to define a concrete work plan on how to approach the donors that you have ranked highest. The work plan defines all the necessary steps for ‘cultivating’ each of these donors until making ‘the ask’, that is developing the application documents.
The template is an Excel document which covers:
– name of donor
– calendar months and weeks
– definition of activities
– who is in charge
– which deliverable is needed
– and what is the status
A follow up coaching via Skype on the identified donors including tips and tricks on proposal writing
After we have completed the donor mapping, we arrange an appr. 1-hour Skype call with you or your team. In this call we will go through each selected donor, explain you in more detail what we have found out in our research process and also provide you with any insider tips we may have on specific donors. We will also share with you which donors we would consider most suitable for your particular project.
And you will have the chance to ask any questions of your interest (like application procedures or ideas on successful grant proposals).
7 hours of bonus material on how to win grants
You will get access to 5 webinars carried out by our experts on various topics such as: (1) International grants from German and Swiss foundations; (2) Unusual suspects – How to successfully apply to USAID and DFID; (3) Successful fundraising from European foundations; (4) How to access EU Funds for development cooperation projects; and (5) Grant proposals for foundations – ideas for a compelling case.
This will round up your fundraising approach and you can successfully get the ball rolling.
