Grant Writing Tips for NFPs

Supporting community through times of change 

Helping community groups determine if they are grant ready, and to set up a framework, from which one can be ready to apply for any grant  


What grants are available?

There are many grants available to non-profit organisations. With the majority of the workforce being volunteers with limited time to dedicate to applying for grants, how does one decide which ones are best and where to invest precious time into? 


Are you grant ready? 

The first question is, “Are we grant ready?” With most funders having different requirements and application procedures, learning how to set up a framework, from which one can be ready to apply for any grant efficiently and effectively will open the doors to opportunity and success.
