Launching

Developing a Proposal

Crupress Archive

In order to resource your ministry, you must be able to provide current and potential ministry partners with two things:

  • A strategic plan with quantifiable goals
  • A budget based on the plan

Once you’ve established the plan and the financial resources, you’ll need to work the plan. You’ll need to develop some communication pieces to present your need, including a proposal.

Your partners don’t expect an MBA level business plan, but they will expect your proposal to be:

  • Concise
  • Clear
  • Compelling

A first step in communicating needs is the Executive Summary. This is a single page document that can be used as a cover page or an introduction before presenting a more in-depth plan. Download the worksheet (click on the icon above) to develop content for an Executive Summary.
