Proposal Writing Guidebook for Grassroots-based NGOs/CBOs/CSOs

Characteristics of successful proposal writing

A good proposal must convince the donor/funding agencies about the following aspects of the project going to be proposed by the organization:

– The issue going to be addressed matches with the objectives/target area of the donor agency.
– The problem going to be addressed is of significant magnitude in the proposed area amongst the target population.
– A need assessment/baseline survey has already been done to assess the gravity of the problem.
– The beneficiaries were involved in need assessment by using various participatory tools (PRA/PLA/RRA etc.) & the organization believe in beneficiaries’ capacity & capabilities to bring changes.
– Partnership & networking with other organizations of the area who are working for the same problem/issue.
– Is the organization well equipped to undertake the project in terms of manpower, capital, infrastructure etc? An organization must do SWOT (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats) analysis before writing any proposal.
