Arts Proposal Writing. A Sourcebook of Ideas for Writing Proposals for Any School Program. For People Who Thought They Couldn't Write a Proposal, or Wouldn't Ever Need to And for Those Who Didn't Even Realize They Had a Proposal to Make.
Sterling, Carol; And Others
Step-by-step instructions on how to write a proposal for funding a program are given in this booklet. While many of the examples are related to the needs of arts educators, the information and procedures can be adapted to other situations. In a workbook approach, 36 questions are posed to clarify objectives and needs, including planning a budget, determining staff and facilities, and evaluating and disseminating of program results. Also offered are suggested techniques for identifying appropriate funding sources and approaching foundations, businesses, and government sources. A selected bibliography of publications on fund raising is appended as well as a list of eight elements of a good proposal, a sample budget, and a test to score proposal effectiveness. (JD)
