I bought the Proposal Pack in June and found it to be very useful for creating professional-looking customer proposals. The proposal wizard makes it extremely simple to create a complex proposal. It also provides a lot of flexibility in customizing the proposal to match the project at hand. I am sure to be using it for every singly deal where a comprehensive proposal is to be submitted to a customer, as it saves a lot of time. I am happy to recommend it to anyone who is looking for assistance in creating customer proposals that look professionally done."

Components of a Grant Funding Request Proposal

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a grant funding request proposal. Proposal Kit templates can be customized as needed to fit any situation using the extensive chapter template library. Here are some key chapters typically included in this type of template. Use this template as your starting point and customize it as needed using the software included with each Proposal Pack or the Professional bundle.

Cover Sheet

The Cover Sheet is the first page of your grant funding request proposal. It typically includes the project's name, the organization requesting the funds, and the date. This sets the stage for the rest of the document by providing a clear and concise introduction.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary offers a brief overview of the proposal, summarizing the key points. It is crucial for providing a snapshot of what the proposal will cover, including the purpose of the project and the amount of funding requested.

Needs Assessment

The Needs Assessment chapter identifies the problem or need that your project aims to address. Here, you provide data and evidence to demonstrate why the funding is necessary, which helps to justify the request.

Project Methods

In the Project Methods chapter, you detail how the project will be implemented. This includes methodologies, strategies, and specific activities that will be undertaken to achieve the project's goals.

Project Background

The Project Background chapter offers context by explaining the history and development of the project. This might include previous phases, pilot tests, or related initiatives that led to the current proposal.

Project Management

The Project Management chapter describes the organizational structure and the management plan. It outlines who will be responsible for various tasks and how the project will be overseen to ensure successful completion.

Time Line

The Time Line chapter provides a schedule of activities and milestones. This helps funders understand the project's timeline and when key objectives will be met.


In the Evaluation chapter, you describe how you will measure the project's success. This could include metrics, evaluation methods, and an explanation of how the outcomes will be assessed.

Financial Statement

The Financial Statement chapter includes a detailed report of the organization's financial health. This provides funders with an understanding of your financial stability and transparency.

Financial Information

Similar to the Financial Statement, the Financial Information chapter offers additional details on your organization's finances, such as past funding sources, expenses, and financial practices.

Sources of Funds

The Sources of Funds chapter outlines where the current or anticipated funding will come from. This helps to demonstrate a diversified funding base and financial sustainability.

Uses of Funds

In the Uses of Funds chapter, you explain how the requested funds will be allocated. This should align with the project's budget and detail specific expenditures.

Funding Request

The Funding Request chapter is where you formally ask for the specific amount of money needed. It includes a justification for the amount based on the project's needs.


The Budget chapter provides a detailed financial plan for the project, listing all projected income and expenses. This is crucial for funders to understand how their money will be used.

Company History

The Company History chapter gives an overview of your organization, including its mission, vision, and past achievements. This helps to build credibility and trust with potential funders.


The Resume chapter includes the resumes or CVs of key project personnel. This helps to showcase the expertise and qualifications of the team involved in the project.

Programs and Activities

The Programs and Activities chapter describes other ongoing initiatives within your organization. This provides a broader context of your organization's work and how the proposed project fits into it.


In the Constituency chapter, you describe the target population or community that will benefit from the project. This helps to make the case that there is a real, identifiable need for the project.


The Partnerships chapter outlines any collaborations with other organizations or entities. This can strengthen your proposal by showing that you have support and additional resources.


The Personnel chapter provides information about the staff and their roles in the project. This includes qualifications, experience, and responsibilities, ensuring funders that the project will be well-managed.

Tax Status

The Tax Status chapter verifies your organization's tax status, often including proof of non-profit status. This is important for funders, particularly those who only grant to tax-exempt entities.

Officers and Board

The Officers and Board chapter lists the members of your organization's leadership team. This includes board members and officers, providing transparency about who governs your organization.

Reference Material

The Reference Material chapter includes additional documents or information that support your proposal. This might be research studies, reports, or other relevant materials.

Provisions Compliance

In the Provisions Compliance chapter, you detail how your project complies with relevant laws, regulations, or guidelines. This demonstrates due diligence and adherence to legal standards.

List of Supporters

The List of Supporters chapter includes names and, if possible, testimonials from individuals or organizations that support your project. This can add credibility and show a broad base of backing.

Letters of Reference

The Letters of Reference chapter contains letters from third parties who endorse your project. These letters should highlight the project's potential impact and the credibility of your organization.


The Studies chapter includes any research or studies that support your project's premise. This adds an additional layer of validation to your needs assessment and project methods.
