Understand your role and responsibilities in making this work.
Demonstrate the many teams and resources available to help you navigate the proposal process, institutional requirements and better understand the requests and interests of your prospective funder.
Avoid mistakes that can have negative impacts on project implementation and funding, and which can put donor relationships at risk.
Learn about useful tools that can make proposal preparation more efficient.
