Proposal Writing – Papillon Press & Consultancy

Fundraising Proposal Writing

This course, developed by Jill Ritchie, who has specialised in corporate and trust fundraising for over three decades, is aimed at anyone wanting to hone their proposal writing skills or those new to fundraising.

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying projects
  • Compiling budgets for non-financial people
  • Researching donors
  • The challenge of writing a succinct yet fundable proposal
  • The covering letter
  • Enclosures
  • Funding opportunities presented by BEE
  • Planning the fundraising year
  • Nurturing donors
Sample proposals are included in the comprehensive notes provided. 

An optional additional service, only available to delegates to this course, is the opportunity to send their funding proposals and supporting documents to the Papillion team for comment and advice before presentation to potential donors. (Note: this does not include a re-write or edit but comment and advice only, as an extension of the learning gained during the course).
