Grant Application Writing


Minuf provides grant writing services for specific grants, regardless of size. Minuf has broad experience in grant writing for funding organizations in Israel and abroad, Jewish Federations, governmental agencies, municipalities, USAID, and CSR departments. In addition, Minuf has proven successful in grant writing for the EU and the Estates Ministerial Committee of the Israeli Ministry of Justice.

Improving the Organization’s Fundraising Infrastructure


Preparing a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) that will help the organization to identify potential funding sources, such as funds (foundations, Federations, etc.), private donors or businesses, government, income generating projects, digital fundraising, etc. – and build a workplan.

Preparing an online database for planning, prioritizing and follow-up on the fundraising processes in the organization, including lists of relevant donors and foundations and their details and contact information.

Creating a database of friends and donors and maintaining and strengthening the relationships via telephone calls, online newsletters, special events, and more.

Making your organization visible in relevant national forums, e.g. presence at various foundations’ events and conferences related to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), access to online data bases, etc.

Budget Building: A budget is different than a financial report and a budget that is built and presented correctly can make or break your chances of receiving a grant. We will help you prepare a clear-cut, effective budget that reflects the important work you do and is appealing to potential donors.

Creating “Friends of…” in Israel and abroad in order to bridge the gap between your Israeli non-profit and giving organizations abroad.

Creating a digital infrastructure for online fundraising, including building an infrastructure for fundraising on existing platforms, building a website, building and maintaining the organization’s Facebook page(s), etc.

Creating Income, Generating Projects


Many nonprofit organizations are able to create a service in order to generate income. However, most organizations lack the necessary experience in business and management in order to successfully identify, develop and manage opportunities. In this process, it is key to accurately map and identify the organization’s intellectual assets, and construct a business model to leverage its assets for generating income.

After working with the organization in order to accurately identify income-generating options, Minuf guides and supports the organization from the project’s inception to creating a detailed business plan. This usually includes:

  • Identifying the relevant capacities and resources that exist inside the organization, overcoming internal obstacles
  • Researching similar fields in other countries
  • Locating government funding, seeking philanthropists interested in supporting the new income generating project
  • Preparing a business plan, arranging and running a pilot program
  • Hiring and training a manager for the project, and providing guidance during the first months of the project’s real operation on an as-needed basis.
  • SWOT analysis (to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats)
  • Identifying the unique selling point (USP), branding, describing the products and services, target audiences, pricing, marketing and sales, profit analysis, social and financial return, and more.
