Strategizing each request is vital for success! Elements of a Gold Medal Proposal Package So, what goes into a Gold Medal Proposal Package? Let's go back to our RIS form to find out. Under the second heading, "Documentation," we'll need to include all the elements from the sections "Organization Information" and "Proposed Project Package." Keep in mind that, as a general rule, the larger the grant, the more documents the funder will request. Of course, we will get all of them ready for the Gold Medal template. Just a side note: You will also need to include the items under "Initial Approach," of which the complete proposal package is one. If the funder doesn't specify a page length, be sure to follow the general rules we outlined in our last lesson and make the letter of inquiry between two and three pages and the letter of request between three and five pages. Okay, back to our Gold Medal Proposal Package. You'll write the majority of the organization and project documents once and then update them each year. The only documents that will be new each year are the project income and expense budget, the audited financial statement, and the project budget and request. For safety, I recommend keeping an electronic copy in your computer files (remember the Computer Tree?) and a hard copy in your development department file cabinet. Let's get started with the organization history and background. Your Organization History and Background As you write this paragraph, you'll want to answer questions like the following: When was your organization established? Whose idea was it? Who is that person? What was the driving force behind its creation? What are some of the most interesting and important milestones throughout your organization's history? What have you done in the past? What are you doing currently?

What is your organization's purpose? Who is your organization's current leadership? These are just some questions to help get you started—please don't feel that you have to tackle every single one! Some may not be relevant to your situation, while other questions that aren't even listed may be more applicable to you. Use your own good judgment in this. Perhaps some examples would help you along in the process. Let's first look at the organization history of Girls and Boys Town:
