Writing Winning Grant Applications - flyer attached:

This workshop will explore how to put together grant applications that communicate effectively to funders and increase chance of success.

Topics covered will include:

  • Demystifying the language of grants and fundraising to speak the funders language
  • How to pitch your project and cause so people are queuing up to fund you
  • Recognising what information the funder needs to hear so they will support you
  • Identifying  what turns funders on and what turns funders off

In this workshop Sandy will share what she has learned after many years of experience raising funds for organisations and projects as well as sitting on funding allocation committees.
