Proposal Writing: Grants & Funding Applications
GATE’s resources on Grant Proposal Writing include a Toolkit and an open-access online Training Course via Google Classroom. These resources will guide trans, gender diverse and intersex organizations to write effective grant proposals.
While it is a lot of work to apply for funding, hopefully this tool and the accompanying training provides you with a space to store information about your organization and work that you can use again and again for other donors.
Proposal Writing Toolkit
GATE’s Proposal Writing Toolkit is a practical guide to help organizations to write funding proposals and apply for grants. Your grant proposal is the main tool that the funder uses to get to know your work better and understand how you plan to make progress towards the change you hope to make in the world.
Grant proposals can take a lot of time. This toolkit can help you to gather all the important information about your organization and work in one place, which you can update and change as needed.
