Proposal Writing

Proposal writing is one component of an overall fund development strategy for a community, region or non-profit organization.

Success in accessing grants or sponsorship is closely aligned with the visibility and credibility of the applicant. An overall Communications Strategy is recommended to generate ongoing awareness for the applicant’s mandate and to feature project updates and success stories. Proposal writing along with developing a Case Statement is included in Module 2 of the online Community and Economic Development Program.

Here is a succinct overview of Writing a Successful Grant Proposal that hits the key proposal components, written for the Minnesota Council of Foundations.
