Face-to-Face Course

This course takes place in Ede, the Netherlands. During the 4-day course we will explore together what makes a project proposal stand out critically analysing your own organisation and the change you want to contribute to, and how this fits the interests of a potential donor. We will also look at the proposal development process, practical writing and pitching skills, and practice with the evaluation criteria donors use to evaluate proposals.
