About Us

The idea for proposalsforNGOs came out of discussions of what grassroots NGOs need to thrive and what we can do to reach more NGOs with capacity-building resources.

proposalsforNGOs believes that local and grassroots NGOs can be productive, positive forces for change in the world if they have access to tools and knowledge to apply themselves and gain resources. Our mission is to reach these NGOs and connect them with expert advice on proposal writing to get their amazing projects funded.

proposalsforNGOs is an online community for global development professionals with the goal of increasing the sustainability of NGOs around the world. The enormous growth in funding opportunities, as well as NGOs over time, has made fundraising more competitive. Today,  donor proposal requirements have become more complex and proposals of higher quality are required to succeed. On our site, you will find articles about everything related to proposal writing – definitions, tips, samples, and insights.

proposalsforNGOs is NOT a funding organization, nor are we a proposal writing organization. We do not provide grants, we do not fundraise, we do not write proposals, we do not connect NGOs to proposal writers. What we do is provide the resources NGOs need to build long-term internal capacity to provide these services for themselves. Proposal writing is a skill most NGOs will need throughout the entire institutional lifetime of the NGO, so it is important to build these skills early and keep them within the organization.
