Packages and Membership
The Mini Membership is our smallest package suitable for organisations that are curious to test our services for 1 month and are happy to access only a limited number of funding opportunities.

This 1-month package costs €19 in total. One user account is included. Buy here.
The Starter Membership is suitable for organisations that want to access both databases: the grants database (open calls) as well as the donor database (with more than 2,400 static donor profiles from governments, foundations, funds, banks, UN agencies, and impact investors). This package provides you access to close to 4,000 opportunities. It can be bought for a period of 6 months and costs €24/month (€144 in total). Two user accounts are included. Buy here.
The Top Seller Membership is our members’ most favourite option: 90% of our clients are Top Seller members.

This membership package can be bought for a period of 12 months and costs €29/month (€348 in total), Organisations based in developing countries only pay €19/month (€228 in total).

“I think your database is excellent and the info you send is really useful. I find at least one new potential donor every week on these emails and I’ve been working on grants for over 10 years so I thought I knew most of them!” (Railway Children, UK)
Our Premium Membership includes individual proposal writing assistance: you send us an existing proposal and we add comments in the text on how you can improve and brush up the proposal (i.e. we add comments on the problem statement, the impact-outcome-output formulation, the proposed activities, sustainability, Value for Money, cross cutting issues such as gender or environment, the budget etc.). This package costs 99€/month (duration 12 months) and includes:
6 Proposal reviews: We have over 15 years experience in writing proposals for public and private donors like USAID, DFID, EC, or foundations both in Europe and the US. For the proposal review, you send us an existing proposal and we add comments in the text on how you can improve and brush up the proposal (i.e. we add comments on the problem statement, the impact-outcome-output formulation, the proposed activities, sustainability, Value for Money, cross cutting issues such as gender or environment, the budget etc.). The 12 months Premium Package includes 6 proposal reviews.
Alternatively, we can write a proposal from scratch or carry out a donor mapping or prospect research: You can adjust the Premium Package according to your needs. Instead of reviewing your existing proposals, we can also:
(1) Write a proposal from scratch: You need to provide us with the basic ideas such as organisational profile, activities or beneficiaries. Then we compile the proposal for you. The page limit is 10 pages (additional proposal writing services can be bought for 60€/hour). Please note that 1 new proposal equals 3 proposal reviews.
(2) Carry out a donor mapping: In a first step, you are kindly asked to fill in our prospect research questionnaire (4 pages) which allows us to get a good understanding of your organisation. The questionnaire requires you to provide organisational details (i.e. mission, activities) and the type of donors you are interested in (i.e. for which countries, sectors, types such as foundations, governments etc., grant and donor sizes, nationality of donors etc.). We then arrange a Skype call with you to clarify any open questions. We then carry out the research and screen various databases, foundation directories, annual reports of similar organisations and other documents. You will be provided with a document containing 40 high potential donors for your organisation (app. 20 pages) including: name, address, website, thematic focus and application procedure. Please note that 1 donor mapping equals 3 proposal reviews.
