A concept note is a short version of a proposal. Donors often request concept notes as the first step in funding applications. This allows them to screen applications so that only the best ones are invited to submit a full proposal.
Usually the donor has their own concept note template that you can use. If they don’t have one then this template is a useful starting point.
This concept note template is appropriate when:
- The donor doesn’t have a specific concept note template.
- The concept note is for a small to medium size program.
This concept note template is NOT appropriate when:
- The donor has a specific concept note template that you should use.
- The concept note is for a large or complex program.
