Funding proposals can be a challenging prospect. Getting them right can unlock resources for civil society organisations, and can open up new opportunities. In March 2024, INTRAC will run a new online course on funding proposals. Run by experienced trainer Rachel Haynes, this course is also rooted in principles of equitable collaboration and decolonisation.

About the course

Using a mix of methods, this course will equip participants with tools and skills to design and develop solid, collaborative funding proposals. It will also help to challenge power dynamics in funding processes. Participants will learn practical tools, discuss decolonisation in funding partnerships, and gain insights on reflecting these principles in proposals.

The course title is “developing strong, collaborative funding proposals for equitable and localised projects“. It is a facilitated, collaborative, and interactive experience previously run by Bond. INTRAC has taken on this course for 2024, as an aspect of our partnership with Bond.

Who is the training for?

This training is suited for both new and experienced proposal writers. It is Ideal for programme staff, fundraisers, and business development personnel seeking to hone their proposal writing skills for grant funders. The course is suitable for smaller organisations starting to work with institutional donors. It will also suit those actively decolonising practices by decentralising or localising their funding streams. The course has a global reach; it is open to participants from anywhere in the world.
