Documentary Proposal Template Pack

The Documentary Proposal Template is a comprehensive, step-by-step fundraising tool that helps you pitch your documentary project to potential major funding partners including corporations, private investors and foundations.

Created by our own Emmy-winning documentary team, the template is a pre-formatted pre-written document that helps you create a stunning, professional and powerful proposal for your film.

Where To Start?

Too many documentary proposals are unprofessional, lack the correct information and turn off wealthy donors and potential funders right at the start.

One of the first things a potential donor will ask for is a documentary treatment or proposal. Unless they are a foundation or government agency, they will not tell you what to include in the proposal or how to write it in such a way that will convince them to give you money. 

So how do you know what to include in the proposal that will give you the best chance to get funding? 

Often, a wealthy individual will want to meet you and hear in your own words why this project is important to you and why their funding is needed. A proposal can be a POWERFUL tool to set the stage and open the door for you.

A professional and well written proposal lets a potential funder know that you have thought through every detail and that you have a clear vision for your film. 

The proposal builds CREDIBILITY for you and your project. A sloppy or incomplete proposal is almost guaranteed to doom your fundraising efforts. The funder won't say it out loud, but they will think to themselves, "If this person can't even put together a proposal, what is the documentary going to look like?"

What if there was a simple documentary proposal template you could follow -- with exact text and pre-formatted lay-out -- that showed you exactly what to include and how to write your proposal to get the funding you needed?
