Identifying funding sources and applying for funds

Secure funding for your community group! Learn to identify funding sources and create winning applications in this practical workshop.

Ensure your funding request stands out. Discover the art of approaching applications, grants, and proposals effectively.

We understand that every community group has its unique strengths and challenges. In this highly practical workshop we’ll guide you through the process of identifying funding sources tailored to your community initiatives. Learn how to efficiently navigate various funding landscapes, from philanthropic foundations to government grants.

The afternoon session will look at the practicalities of grant and submission writing. Together, we’ll explore how to craft compelling narratives that resonate with potential funders, using your own examples.

Elements of this Community Upskill workshop include:

  • Forms of funding: better understand philanthropic and government funding contexts.
  • Finding funds: explore various ways to find available funds.
  • Matchmaking: efficient use of your time to maximise alignment with potential funders.
  • Relationship management: nurturing healthy relationships with funders.
