Funding and proposals

Good projects need good funding.

Your partners in securing funding

Today’s funding landscape is fuelled by constant change, intense competition, new funding forms and ever increasing time, compliance and resource demands to write and submit high quality proposals.

Many organisations experience acute resource, time and expertise constraints when looking for the right funding, whilst others simply want to concentrate on creating good impact.

We help our clients worldwide to identify, secure and scale funding opportunities – often rapidly.

By working closely together with our clients in all areas, and through constant research, benchmarking and optimisation, we aim to permanently increase our clients funding capacity and project income to fuel impact.

MzN International has been providing funding support for War Child Deutschland’s institutional fundraising since August 2020. We are a small start-up NGO and, with the help of MzN, we were able to secure a larger grant from the German government, improve our systems and develop a number of boilerplate texts for future applications.Thank you MzN for the professional and reliable support over the past months.
