A proposal, in short, should be a well-organized outline of each facet of your proposed project. If you are presenting this to a group, make sure you find out if a specific format is required. Regardless of your media (paper, PowerPoint, online) you should present a cover sheet with the name of the project and any other relevant information such as a date of completion. Outline your objective, budget, strategy and implementation plans. Make sure you leave no costs unturned. Generally speaking, the dollars are the most important part of the presentation.
