Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) is dedicated to protecting endangered species and preserving their natural habitats. It supports innovative strategies for people and wildlife to co-exist and thrive. WCN fosters the entrepreneurial spirit in the field of conservation. It partners with independent, community-based conservationists around the world with emphasis on Latin America, Africa, and Asia and provides them with the capital and tools they need to develop solutions for human-wildlife coexistence. To magnify the effectiveness of their work, WCN maintains a strong network of wildlife supporters through which these courageous conservationists may learn from each other and communicate directly with passionate donors.

The proposals made to donor / grantmaking organization is to create a long lasting relationship between two different organizations seeking a mutual goal. Donors want to reap the maximum social advantage out of their money by giving it to grantseeking organizations, who can be partner to achieve their goal.
Ozg proposal writers and liaison agents represent a grantseeking organization, who can be partner to achieve donor's goal as well as their own mission. Go to http://proposalwriter.ozg.in for more details.
Important Note –
Please, do not send unsolicited emails or mail seeking funding support to donor agencies. This will discredit your NGO and can also bring bad reputation to you as an individual as well as a NGO.
Fund raising is a competitive process and you need to follow ethics and not spam donor emails with long, unrelated requests for fund / grant support. If you just keep sending emails seeking support without knowing your donor, your chances of raising funds for your NGO will be drastically reduced and you may be blacklisted as a spammer.
