World Renew, an agency of the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA), is a non-profit, international development and disaster response organization with offices in Burlington, Ontario (Canada) and Grand Rapids and Byron Center, Michigan (U.S.A.).
World Renew is embarking on a five-year Comprehensive Impact Campaign (CIC) to impact the lives of 6 million people and raise $200 million. The CIC will raise the organizational profile, broaden our donor base, and engage our support community in new ways. To achieve these goals, World Renew has begun working with a firm specializing in marketing, communications, and fundraising with individual donors and churches. In an effort to fully realize the campaign goal, World Renew now seeks a firm to provide similar overall direction focusing on institutional donors (such as governments, institutions, corporations and foundations) into the campaign.
Key Consultancy Objective:
World Renew seeks to engage an experienced grants acquisition and management consulting firm (or individual) to identify trends with institutional donors who support international development activities, evaluate partnership trends and opportunities, and develop a grant strategy to enhance the success of World Renew’s current grant-seeking processes.
-Review of institutional funding trends, including geographic and sector focus.
-Analysis of current and potential value of partnerships.
-Identify resources and tools to streamline network of potential grant funders and other institutional donors.
-Strategy to enhance the win rate of World Renew’s grant seeking process, including strategy on how funder opportunities can be best matched with potential projects.
-Review World Renew’s competitive advantage proposition and provide guidance, based on best practices from other similar NGOs, for better packaging the value added component of consulting with local partners in addition to a cost per participant calculation.
-Strategy to enhance how program cost structures are developed to ensure budgets are accurate, defensible and competitive.
