Write successful fundraising proposals in eight easy steps!

Overview of workshop

Writing fundraising proposals often forms part of introductory workshops to development. But proposal writing is a complex skill that requires more attention than an overview. This workshop is dedicated to writing and tailoring of fundraising proposals!

During this one-day workshop you will learn:

  1. The 8 steps to write a fundraising proposal for foundations and CSI. The workshop will explain each step, share techniques and useful tips.
  2. The tactics to tailor proposals based on the donor guidelines and a persuasive donor offering.
