An important resource strategy to secure organizational funding is identifying and writing proposal and grant applications. Proposal/grant development is generally done in response to a procurement or solicitation released by a funder or investor.
Your organization can use this method of resource mobilization to obtain funds for one- to six-year projects as opposed to business planning which secures funding for the development and launch of a single product and/or service. Proposal development can yield considerable revenue for an organization.
This section of the Resource Mobilization I-Kit will cover the steps your organization should take to identify proposal and grant opportunities, write a proposal/grant and finally manage a proposal/grant development process.
