Proposals are persuasive documents that are fundamental tools in organisational funding and output. This content will look at sources of funding, types of proposals and how to write proposals that will meet funding agencies requirements. This will include a number of tips and techniques to increase the potential success of your proposals. An important but often overlooked aspect of proposal writing will also be covered- Building and Maintaining Relationships. Relationships are built on honesty. Potential projects must be a good fit for your organisation and your organisation must be ready to do the work contained in the proposal. The most successful proposals are going to be those that fulfil the mission and values of your organisation and that of the funding agencies as well!
