Proposals are essential for any organization, as they decide the success or failure of an organization. Writing proposal is one of the most critical aspects for any non-governmental organization to raise funds from the donors. It helps in cultivating the relationship between the NGOs and donors over a project.

Writing proposal is not an easy task to perform, it involves a lot of brainstorming and learning from the past. As an NGO, you must be aware that it is both the uniqueness and the presentation of the proposal which is required to get the desired funding. Writing a clear, thorough and targeted project proposal is therefore vital to an NGO’s success as it is the medium of projecting your thoughts to the outside world.
