Grant Writing 101 for Community Practitioners

Want to write winning grant applications?

Have you ever written a cracker grant application for an excellent project only to discover it hasn’t been successful?

Disappointing huh. Not only is this a waste of your time, it’s likely your progress on your community project will also slow down.

While there are certainly some easy tips to improve your actual grant writing (which are shared in the course), believe it or not, successful applications aren’t always about the words on the paper.


You read correctly. In a highly competitive funding market a well written, what we call a ‘good’ application isn’t enough to get you over the line.

Your grant applications need to be great. It isn’t rocket science, but there are some tricks that you need to learn.

Great applications that win the $$ are strategic, aligned to the funding criteria, clearly demonstrate demand, have a vocal cheer squad and demonstrate value for money.

If you think the course is only about writing the grant, think again – I want you to write GREAT grant applications.
