If you’re responsible for fundraising in your organisation and want to improve your knowledge and skills in writing successful grant submissions, this is the training for you. This training provides a rundown of all 6 areas of fundraising: grants, events, membership, sales, donations and sponsorship. You'll learn the secrets to secure funds more easily and win more grants for your community organisation.


Topics include:

  • how to plan for funding
  • how to ask for money – learn how to successfully ask for money using a range of mediums
  • how to raise secure, unattached and predictable income – untied money to use for your group’s own priorities and decisions
  • how to run great events – eliminate loss-making, energy-sapping events for good
  • how to rally the troops – instilling a fundraising culture in your organisation
  • how to get business to support your community group – the secrets to successful, and profitable, community-business partnerships
  • how to ensure sponsors get what they expect
  • the best way to present your proposal – tell the story of your project and your group to get the greatest advantage
  • planning for grants in a practical and easy process
  • how to develop your statement of need – choosing data to support your project proposal
  • how to develop an organisational template – save time in writing applications and create a corporate memory that can be passed on
  • how to humanise your story – presenting a compelling picture.


Places are limited to 2 people per organisation and priority is given to community and not for profit organisations operating in our area.
