I just wanted to thank you very much, the very first time I used your Proposal Pack I sent it to the health care system and I got a beautiful email saying ‘that was exactly the format that I was hoping for’ and he wants to do business on Monday, which was amazing as before he was looking at next year. So I want to thank you, you are an enormous help, and for the hands on, you gave me the confidence and the help that I needed."

Components of the Charity Proposal Template

Creating the Charity Proposal Template involves assembling several chapters and filling them in with your details. While there's no one-size-fits-all template for every situation, Proposal Kit offers layouts that can be customized using its extensive chapter template library. The Wizard software builds this template for you, customized to your needs. The Wizard software is included in every Proposal Pack and the Proposal Kit Professional. You can customize this list of chapters as needed in the Wizard software, such as adding additional chapters, removing chapters, and changing the order of chapters.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as the formal introduction to the proposal. It provides a brief overview of the charity's mission and the specific request, whether for funding or partnership. It aims to engage the reader's interest and encourage them to read the detailed proposal that follows.

Title Page

The Title Page includes essential details such as the name of the proposal, the name of the charity, and the date of submission. This page acts as the front cover of the proposal, giving a professional look and making a good first impression.

Table of Contents

The Table of Contents lists all the sections and chapters of the proposal in order, allowing the reader easy navigation through the document. This helps in maintaining a structured and organized presentation of information.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary provides a concise summary of the entire proposal. It highlights the charity's goals, the need for support, and the impact expected from the proposed funding or partnership. This section is crucial as it often determines the reader's interest in supporting the cause.

Needs Assessment

The Needs Assessment details the specific needs or challenges that the charity aims to address with the project. It uses data and research to justify why these needs exist and how the proposed project will meet them.

Goals and Objectives

This section outlines the specific goals and objectives the charity aims to achieve with the project. It sets clear, measurable targets that the organization plans to reach, thereby providing a clear vision of what the project intends to accomplish.

Project Description

The Project Description provides a detailed overview of the proposed project. It explains how the project will be implemented, the activities involved, and the timeline for these activities. This section is key to painting a clear picture of how the objectives will be met.


The Budget section itemizes the financial requirements of the project. Using the Proposal Kit's line-item database, it presents a detailed breakdown of all costs involved, ensuring transparency and aiding in the financial planning of potential donors or partners.

Funding Request

In the Funding Request, the charity outlines the specific funding needs and how these funds will be used within the project. It directly addresses potential funders, explaining why financial support is crucial and how it will benefit the project.

About Us

The About Us section introduces the charity, sharing its history, mission, and values. This chapter helps build credibility and trust by showing the accomplishments and the long-term vision of the organization.

Team Members

The Team Members section presents the key personnel involved in the project. It includes their qualifications, roles, and responsibilities, showcasing the expertise and capability of the team to manage and implement the project successfully.

Partnerships and Collaborations

This chapter outlines existing or proposed partnerships and collaborations that enhance the project's credibility and feasibility. It demonstrates the charity's ability to work alongside other entities for greater impact.


The Testimonials section includes positive statements from individuals, communities, or organizations that have previously benefited from the charity's work. This serves to validate the charity's impact and effectiveness through firsthand accounts.

Impact Statement

The Impact Statement describes the expected outcomes and benefits of the project. It highlights how the project will positively affect the community or cause, providing a compelling argument for support based on tangible impacts.


This section addresses how the project will continue to operate and achieve its goals over the long term. It reassures donors and partners of the project's longevity and ongoing relevance.


The Appendices provide additional documents and data supporting the proposal. This may include references, supporting materials, legal documents, or additional detailed information that supports the proposal's validity but is too extensive to include in the main body of the document.
