This product has saved us so much time and energy and helped us produce professional extremely high quality proposals that look great. The upgrades are even better and it’s obvious these guys have worked hard to make Proposal Pack Wizard even better and now I don’t even have to hire a graphic designer so it’s saving me even more money. I couldn’t recommend this Pack more highly. Anyone putting out regular documentation, submissions, proposals, etc, would be nuts not to buy it."

Components of a Non-profit Support Proposal

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a non-profit support 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 Letter

The Cover Letter serves as the proposal's introduction, explaining its purpose and capturing the recipient's attention. For a Non-profit Support Proposal, the cover letter should briefly introduce the non-profit, summarize the project needing support, and extend an invitation for further discussion.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary provides a concise overview of the entire proposal. It highlights the key points such as the project goals, the support requested, and the anticipated impact. This section is critical for busy readers who need to understand the essence of the proposal quickly.

Funding Plan

The Funding Plan outlines how the non-profit intends to secure and allocate financial resources for the project. This chapter details potential funding sources, fundraising activities, and financial projections, demonstrating a clear strategy for achieving financial sustainability.

Implementation Plan

The Implementation Plan breaks down how the proposed project will be executed. It includes timelines, specific tasks, responsible parties, and milestones. For non-profits, this section shows the organization's preparedness and capability to carry out the project effectively.


The Support chapter outlines the types and levels of support the non-profit is seeking, whether financial, in-kind, or volunteer assistance. It specifies what the organization needs to make the project successful and how supporters can contribute.


The Outreach chapter describes the methods the non-profit will use to engage with the community and potential supporters. This may include social media campaigns, public events, and partnerships. Effective outreach is crucial for gaining widespread support and raising awareness.


The Awareness chapter focuses on how the non-profit plans to increase public awareness about the project and the broader cause. This can include media strategies, educational programs, and advocacy efforts aimed at drawing attention and garnering support.

Uses of Funds

The Uses of Funds chapter provides a detailed breakdown of how the received donations will be spent. This transparency helps build trust with potential donors, showing that their contributions will be used responsibly and effectively.

Funding Request

The Funding Request chapter explicitly states the amount of financial support needed and justifies the request. It aligns the requested funds with specific aspects of the project, making it clear why the money is needed and how it will be used.

Company History

The Company History chapter gives a background of the non-profit, including its founding, significant milestones, and achievements. This establishes credibility by showing the organization's experience and successful track record.

Tax Status

The Tax Status chapter provides information about the non-profit's legal standing as a 501(c)(3) organization. This reassures potential donors that their contributions are tax-deductible and that the organization operates within the legal framework.

Mission Statement

The Mission Statement chapter clearly articulates the non-profit's purpose and core objectives. This foundational statement ensures that potential supporters understand the organization's guiding principles and long-term goals.

Core Values

The Core Values chapter highlights the fundamental beliefs and principles that drive the non-profit's work. This helps build a connection with potential donors who share similar values and are more likely to support an organization they believe in.

Letters of Support

The Letters of Support chapter includes endorsements from community leaders, partners, or other stakeholders who vouch for the non-profit's credibility and the project's importance. These letters serve as testimonials to the organization's reliability and the value of the proposed work.
