Course details: 
Effective Grant Writing is simple, but never easy. The art of good grant writing is to keep it simple and coherent for the assessor. There is always the temptation when writing to show the grantee just how wonderful you are and why you are deserving of the funding, but that can often lead to an over written application.
 
This webinar will show you how to come up with a formula for writing winning applications, every time.

  • What is a funding application?

What Previous Attendees of Hugh's Income Diversification workshops said:

"I really enjoyed the introduction to the tools for seeing what fundraising avenues work for your organisation, such as the matrix map.  Also The Wheel's case study was really informative. Whilst I had lots of ideas going into the session, I now have a formula for focusing these ideas into a clearly defined strategy that I'll be able to use and present to my board etc.  Also being able to share ideas and get feedback from others was useful." - L. Bull, Irish Wildlife Trust

"I gained a new perspective on how to look at the issue of funding. I am ready now to start from the beginning, assess our position and follow the steps one at a time. The area of funding can seem overwhelming but when broken down it made the whole thing seem much more manageable." - M. Shelly O'Neill, Dignity4Patients

"I found the content of the workshop very useful on the strategy and what could be termed "governance" around fundraising. I find that quite daunting, but the presentation was well broken down into do-able tasks." - L. Alford, 3Ts

"Sharing of ideas was invaluable to me as this was the first The Wheel event I have attended." - M. Sullivan, World Missions Ireland
