Join us for part 1 from a 2-part webinar series hosted by Pasanna Mutha-Merennege from Strategic Grants

Planning projects and developing proposals before funding opportunities arise is a critical component of grants best practice. Having a “funder ready” project proposal at the ready streamlines grant writing and strengthens your grant application.

Hear from Pasanna Mutha-Merennege, Grants Strategist at Strategic Grants, as she discuss the pivotal role of project planning in creating strong grant applications. Exploring key project planning concepts and offering a comprehensive step-by-step guide, we will be equipped with the tools to craft robust funder ready project proposals.

Pasanna is a Grants Strategist at Strategic Grants. Pasanna has 15+ years of experience working in NGOs, government and international development organisations in the areas of policy, advocacy and government relations.  She has extensive experience driving strategic outcomes, engaging with stakeholders and leading project planning. Her skills and knowledge are invaluable in helping clients with the development of their Grants Strategies, funder-ready project proposals and funder engagement.

This webinar is part of a 2-part series. Part 2 webinar is Grant Writing: preparing high-quality applications that meet funder expectations and will take place on Tuesday 5 March, 12pm-1pm. You can attend one or both. Please click here to register for Part 2.
