This Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal was created to help empower people to be successful in gaining
funds for projects that provide worthwhile social service. A major theme that runs throughout the Guide is a
concern for the development of meaningful cooperative relationships - with funding agencies, with community
organizations, and with the people you are serving - as a basis for the development of strong fundable initiatives.
The Guide is built on the assumption that it is through collaboration and participation at all levels that long term
change can be effected.
To make this Guide as useful as possible, all suggestions have been carefully reviewed with a concern that they
be easy to implement and can have the greatest positive effect on the creation of a funding proposal. (This is the
same design concern that I used for the creation of the companion guide for graduate students - Guide for
Writing and Presenting Your Thesis or Dissertation). Long orations are minimized and suggestions are
presented in a direct and clear manner. Actual proposal examples are included so that you can easily see the
different suggestions demonstrated.
As you are going through this Guide you will probably see things that aren't clear, need fixing, or should be
further clarified. Please send them along and I will do my best to improve the Guide based upon your ideas. I try
to make major revisions in the Guide at least 2-3 times each year. Your suggestions on how to improve this
Guide will be most appreciated
And finally, I receive many requests asking me to recommend a book or two that would be helpful in writing a
good proposal. I've started to create such a listing of books I've identified and my review of each of them. Feel
free to check out my selection of books to help with the preparation of a funding proposal.
Enjoy using this Guide and I hope it brings you good luck as you seek funding for your ideas!
