$20,000+ Grants


This week we have a focus on $20,000 plus grants.

If you have all your documentation in order, don't be afraid to apply for larger funding amounts. The applications may be longer than those for smaller funding amounts, but the return on investment for the time you spend on the application could well pay off.

If you don't have your documentation in order yet, make sure you:

  • Set some fundraising goals now for 2018

  • Take the time to read funding guidelines for programs you would like to apply for in future rounds so you know what you need to have ready

  • Start a grants file so that you have draft application responses and supporting documentation ready to tweak for each application

  • Get project costings done and work out your co-contribution so you know how much you need to apply for.

If this all sounds like too much work, you may be interested in contacting one of our team members to help.
