For NGOs and social enterprises, successful fundraising is essential. Indeed, you cannot overestimate the importance of grants when an organization is in its startup phase. That said, they can be notoriously difficult to access, especially if an organization lacks the experience of applying to grant schemes. Earth Company’s experienced fundraisers offer proposal writing services to help organizations get that next, important grant.
Kumamoto Earthquake Emergency Response : Grant Application
IDRO-JAPAN is an organization made up non-Japanese specialists in areas such as civil engineering that can aid in post-disaster situations. Active in the recovery efforts after the Great East Japan Earthquake, IDRO-JAPAN was one of the first responders to the Kumamoto Earthquake in 2016. On behalf of IDRO, Earth Company applied to the Nippon Foundation for funding to support IDRO’s activities in Kumamoto and successfully obtained almost $10,000. Earth Company undertook this as pro-bono work as a small way to contribute to the recovery efforts in Kumamoto.
