Disaster recovery can create a busy funding environment for the community services sector. The Grant-Seeker workshop is for staff from NSW Northern Rivers community organisations wanting to increase their skills in the best-practice processes and strategies of grant-seeking.

Participants leave with knowledge of:

✓ The grants landscape
✓ Steps to ensuring their organisation is ‘grant ready’
✓ How to package projects, create grant-ready project plans, and set internal processes to succeed (includes full project plan template and budget template/example).
✓ Feedback from funders on why applications do or don’t succeed
✓ Identifying the right funds and how to build funder relationships
✓ How to write a great grant application, including examples of good and bad responses
✓ Targeting message to your audience – government, corporate and philanthropy
✓ Next steps when an application is successful or unsuccessful, and effective reporting, acquittal and stewardship strategies

  • Registrations are limited.
  • Registrations from NCOSS organisational & individual members will be prioritised.
