Download! The FundsforNGOs Guide on Proposal Writing Basics: The Complete “How-To” for Everything Proposal-related

Donor proposal requirements have over time become more complex. This reflects increased competition and ever-larger resources available to the NGO sector. The enormous growth in funding opportunities as well as NGOs has also made fundraising more competitive and requiring higher-quality proposals.

The following guide has been prepared to provide comprehensive information about basic proposal writing for local grassroots NGOs in developing countries and international development workers and fundraisers.

Specifically, this guide aims to:

  • Provide holistic understandings of the grant application process, the purpose of the project proposal and its parts, and tips on proposal writing.
  • Assist international development workers in applying for grants from institutional donors, including private foundations, government embassies and development agencies.
  • Increase the quality of grant applications for projects around the world.
