Writing Grant Proposals
The grant writer spends significant amounts of time writing grant proposals to potentially win funding for their organisation. So how do we aim for success when there are many organisations applying for the same pool of funding and their project or program is also beneficial?
The grant writer Sydney applies several tips to increase their chances of success for their organisation.
When writing a grant proposal, it is of course important to demonstrate to the funding body that the organisation is familiar with the issue their project or program will address. Simply put once the grant writer demonstrates the expertise the organisation has in their field they then concentrate on the solution to the identified issue. If the proposal doesn’t address the organisation’s approach and solution for the issue in detail the funding body will be left wondering what exactly the project aim is. Focusing specifically on the solution using the organisation’s SMART goals and objectives ensures the evaluation team can clearly see what will be achieved with the proposed funding.
Grant writer will use the key words and phrases from the funder’s guidelines to demonstrate a connection between the values and vision of the funders and the organisation vision and project aims and goals. It is important that the correct grant funding be applied for so the grant writer ensures the funder and the applicant have a similar vision for improvements for the community and the target group to be funded. The well written grant proposal is the method to make this connection evident and demonstrate eligibility for the funding.
