  • Design projects that deliver positive, measurable change for the communities you’re trying to serve
  • Write proposals that get your donors' interest and support


Successful projects have to be planned around solid situation analysis - the context, problem and stakeholders - and planned so that they achieve their outcome.

Your donors will have a checklist when evaluating any proposal, and those will vary from organisation to organisation.But there are always three broad things to consider when identifying a project - value, capacity and support.

But identifying a project need and having a good plan often isn't enough. Donors will only support proposals that:

  • Convince them of the value of solving the problem
  • Persuade them you have a solution
  • Convince them you can do it

So you need to be a good communicator, too - presenting your ideas in a coherent way, clearly and persuasively.


WHAT OUR PRACTICAL PROJECT PLANNING & PROPOSAL WRITING COURSE WILL TEACH YOU

You will learn:

  • How to create your own project from start to finish - with tools you can apply every time
  • How to plan organise and communicate these ideas in a proposal that donors will support

The course focuses on the key steps of project planning and proposal writing in a concise way that allows for maximum practical work.

  • Plan, draft and edit a persuasive proposal


CLEAR & PRACTICAL LEARNING

The course addresses the challenges faced by development professionals in project planning and proposal writing in a way that allows for maximum practical work.

  • You will always know what to do each time you have to develop a proposal
  • Your proposals will be well-organised, clear and persuasive - contributing to better relations with donors and, more importantly, increased donor support
  • Your proposals will take less time, will be less stressful and of higher quality

You can work at your own pace - starting when you want, and working at whatever times suit you best. The entire course should take 30 - 40 hours, including all the tasks and developing your own proposal for your Personal Work Review.

You will also learn some key tools and tips you won't find anywhere else - such as how to adjust your writing style to different readers, or how to Mind Map using Mindjet's game-changing software to drastically increase your ability to manage and analyse complex information.

Welcome From Course Instructor Neil Kendrick

Hello - and thanks for checking out this course! I’m truly excited to teach you the vital skills involved in becoming a successful proposal writer.

For over 20 years, I've been helping development professionals raise funds through proposals that donors get behind. From small NGOs to multi-donor million dollar projects, I've helped proposal writers from a range of sectors get support for their projects. From my worldwide experience, you’ll quickly learn what works and what doesn't.

I’ve developed this practical, step-by-step course for all those aspiring proposal writers who couldn't join our face-to-face training due to time, work, travel and cost constraints. Now - without having to book time off, or jump on a plane - you'll soon be able, at your own pace, to:

  • Easily identify a project your donors will support
  • Develop a project plan that aligns with real development issues and donors' interests
  • Plan, draft and edit a proposal that persuades

Applying even just a small part of what you learn on this course will soon lead to greater support from donors as you demonstrate you ability to identify projects and make a strong case for funding.

And, just like donors, we all want results and value for money. Flying to a training, with all its extra costs, can often run into 1000s of dollars per person: think about air tickets, hotel bills, training fees, daily allowances and - of course - interrupted projects - it all adds up. And for less than the travel costs alone, in just a few moments you could have:

  • Access to a complete, structured, step-by-step practical training based on 1000s of hours experience in helping development professionals like you write successful proposals that get results - all downloadable so you don't miss a thing
  • A personal review of your work to back up your certificate

So join me now, on this journey towards winning project proposals.
