How to Craft a Proposal to a Foundation


Proposal writing is the single skill most sought-after by savvy nonprofit managers and volunteers. On the one hand writing a grant proposal can be simple and follows a basic formula. On the other hand, this may be your only chance to put the case for funding your organization in front of a foundation or corporation. You want to be sure to do it right, and this training is essential to do so.

In this 3-hour training participants will learn:

  • Basic components of any grant proposal package
  • Core elements common to every grant proposal narrative
  • How to create a simple accompanying grant proposal budget
  • How to let your funder take the lead in initial approach
  • Important tips on writing the need statement, completing an online application, and submission techniques aimed at getting your proposal noticed
