Resource Mobilization

We are experts in resource mobilization and have a long track record of writing winning proposals to EuropeAid, Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Norad and various foundations. We assisted several organisations in developing high-value, multi-stakeholder and multi-country proposals, as well as developing and implementing fundraising strategies. We also specialise in carrying out market and donor analyses and offering training on donor engagement and strategy development. Our service offering includes:

  • Proposal writing for institutional donors such as EuropeAid, ECHO, Norad, Comic Relief, Ford Foundation, Erasmus+, etc.
  • Donor mapping and research
  • Communications material for donors (e.g. presentations, factsheets)
  • Report writing
  • Proposal quality assurance

Here are some examples of projects we worked on.

Sarah completed a Norwegian market analysis for WaterAid Sweden, detailing relevant institutional aid instruments in Norway and their requirements; funding opportunities that are available in Norway, including foundations; assessment of potential realistic market share and potential for growth; and possibilities to partner with private sector and institutional instruments that are suitable for that purpose.
Sarah was Nordic Partnerships consultant to Frontline AIDS, focusing on institutional funding and donor engagement with Norway, Denmark and Finland. The tasks completed included developing and maintaining country briefs on funding trends, political changes, key contacts, talking points for meetings with Nordic government officials and representing the organisation at various meetings.
