Funding & Grant applications


Does a lack of funds prevent you from starting, improving or scaling your projects?

Let me be your money maker!

Your projects need more than a few donations, and they deserve more. How good would it feel to get one or a few grants acknowledged and have that money injection that takes away that budgeting nightmare? Imagine suddenly you can think about what you want to do instead of what you can do.

  • There are many funding & grant options, depending on your organisation and the projects you do.
  • This money could possibly give you a lot of financial freedom in your projects
  • You need to find these funds & grants
  • You need to write a grant proposal
  • This is a very time-intensive job

I offer a full grant-writing package, or the following services separate:

  • Grant quickscan & pointers. For organisations that want to write their own proposals, but want some professional guidance on how and where to start. I make a quick scan of grant opportunities. I will report the top three grants that match best with your projects and organisation. I will also give pointers on for example where to focus on and what to emphasize with proposal-writing.
  • Grant proofreading. When it comes down to grant applications it is essential to have a second set of eyes look at your proposal. I proofread your proposal, making sure your message is clear and your proposal is competitive.
  • Grant prospect research. For any organisation that wants an overview of the grants they are legible for. I scope the opportunities and will provide you with a list of grants that match your organisation and projects.
  • Grant proposal writing. For any organisation that wants to safe the energy & time of preparing the grant application. I will write the full grant proposal or letter of inquiry (LOI), ensuring it is competitive, thorough, and in line with the guidelines of the grantmaker.

The Full grant-writing package includes the Grant prospect research and Grant proposal writing.

“Anne is able to apply her scientific background in an efficient and effective way to practical issues. She gets things done – Bart Harman, Chairman & Chief entrepreneur NOTS Enterprises

“…I had the honour and pleasure of working with Anne while I was the Country Manager at NOTS. I use the word honour because Anne is among the smarter people I have met. In addition to her smarts, she is energetic, can think strategically and is not at all afraid to roll her sleeves up and work hard. From field project work to desk based detailed analysis, anything you throw at Anne comes back with positive results. The pleasure part comes from her amazing personality, ready smile, contagious laughter, delightful singing and from watching her tear up a dance floor. A stellar example of someone combining both intellectual and emotional intelligence.” – Marc Maisonneuve, Director NOTS Mali
