Writing Winning Proposals
Ace proposal writing with Paula Fray
Are you seeking funding to write stories, do research, implement projects or communicate your project work?
You will need much more than have a good report structure or clean grammar.
Writing a winning proposal means presenting a compelling argument that your proposed activity serves a real need that meets the goals of the funder or publication.
It means understanding the current situation, defining the problem, articulating why your solution would contribute to fixing the problem and then ensuring the implementation is planned in a way that shows an understanding of programme needs and a commitment to monitoring and evaluation to ensure project sustainability. And all this must be done within budget.
Whether you are a non-government organisation, a faith-based group, a researcher or a journalist, programme will help your proposal stand out from all others.
This four-week programme covers:
Preparing to write a proposal
Defining the project
Preparing for impact (with monitoring and evaluation)
It includes helping you identify donors, risk management, improving project sustainability and innovation as well as practical writing suggestions. Course activities guide you along the path to write your own comprehensive proposal with budget.
The course also consists of instructional videos, templates, resources, activities and quizzes.
If you are serious about outreach for financial sustainability, then this course is for you.
