Top tips

Here are four DIY grant writing tips for success.

One – Be strategic! Match what funding is available and when. We all know that writing a grant application in a rush rarely works.

Two – Make sure you find grants that align well with the future direction of your business or organisation.  Find out the ‘how and why’ and a bit more about the funding provider to ensure it’s a great match.

Three – Avoid making simple mistakes.  Make sure you have somebody working with you on the application or at least have someone check it before you submit it.

Four – Live up to your funding obligations.  Make sure you’re prepared to provide interim and final reports to the funding provider to keep up your end of the agreement.
