Writing/Submitting a funding request can be a huge undertaking for any NGO. Putting your request in writing allows you the opportunity to outline your organization’s financial needs and provide background information about the population you serve and the ways you plan to use the funding.
Writing for funding request requires a lot of brainstorming and appropriate knowledge of facts and figures. Always keep in mind, you are asking for money, so you always need to be professional and know your business inside and out. Always Investigate the funding preferences of each prospect before writing the letter.
Keep your funding sources in mind. Each resource will have different questions and concerns; therefore, do a little research so you can address them in your report. Mention where you want to invest your money as funders show a keen interest in knowing the area of investment.
