Major League Dos and Dont’s
  • Rudeness
  • No gifts
  • Attempts to influence foundation Board members
  • Not saying thank you If there is an application form, read the guidelines and complete it in draft form first. And keep a copy.
  • If you are presenting a proposal ensure you put a clear justification for funding– what evidence do you have that it is needed? Wanted? And the most appropriate solution?
  • Do include the supporting information requested.
  • Don’t include lots of superfluous background material that hasn’t been asked for.
  • Do attach a covering letter that summarizes the case you are making for their funding in an objective rather than an emotive way.
  • Do ensure you have included all of your correct contact details and the appropriate person has signed the letter or form.
  • Do ensure you include any references requested. Don’t say that these will follow.
  • Do ask a “critical friend” to read through and review your proposal.
  • Have a realistic budget
