TGEU and FRIDA to host fundraising webinar series on grant writing and resource mobilisation 

From talking to our members, it’s clear that proposal writing and fundraising are some of the biggest obstacles to accessing funding for our trans communities. This is why we are excited to hold a series of fundraising webinars alongside our partner FRIDA Young Feminist Fund.

Facilitated by Paige Andrew, FRIDA´s Chief of Programs – Grantmaking & Operations, the first session in April will focus on grant writing. The second session in May will explore resource mobilisation and will be facilitated by Maureen Andinda, co-manager of Resource Mobilisation. These highly interactive sessions will equip you with the skills, knowledge, and tools to write proposals, map and engage with donors and diversify your funding base.
