Grant Seeking - The Funding Proposal Techniques


The Process of Proposal Writing is grounded in the conviction that a partnership should be developed between the nonprofit and the funding agency or the donor. In fact, the fund has no value until it is attached to solid programs in the nonprofit sector.
This process is a fundraising approach that can be adapted to fit the needs of any nonprofit. It requires some techniques, tools and abilities that enable the organizations obtain the funds needed. Thus, it is an art as well as a science.
