Grant writing workshops
Grants training for non-profit Board and committee members, fundraising committees, staff and volunteers:
– Wodonga | Wednesday 7 March
– Melbourne | Wednesday 21 March
– Gippsland | Wednesday 18 April
There are many grants available to non-profit organisations and with a workforce with limited time to dedicate to applying for grants, how do you decide which ones are the best? Where is the best place to invest the organisation’s precious time?
The first question to ask is, “Are we grant ready?” Many organisations fail in their applications due to a lack of preparation, project clarity, sustainable outcomes and partners. Most funders have different requirements and application processes.
This fun, practical grant writing training session will help to set up a framework from which your organisation can be ready to apply for any grant, efficiently and effectively. It will give you the confidence and tools, to apply strategies which will give you the best chance of writing a successful application to a variety of sources.
Following the workshop, participants will be able to:
– Recognise what grants are most suitable for your organisation and where to find them
– Sell your organisation and its projects
– Define the project / program and its benefits
– Calculate the cost of the plan and prepare a budget
– Determine who are important stakeholders and partners
– Understand sustainability, and how to keep the project / program going after funding finishes
– Evaluate the project / program
