Title: Grant Writing – Case Study 7 (1)

Grant Writing Case Study 7

Grant Writing Case Study 7
Grant Writing Case Study 7
  • This is Case Study 7 in our tranche of articles
    which give tips into the grant writing world and
    the skills and techniques used by our grant
    writers. In this article we will discuss the
    Bowen Golf Club and their need to irrigate some
    of their fairways.
  • The club had installed a dam to capture and
    treat their sewerage effluent water and had
    installed an irrigation system to irrigate some
    of the course. The irrigation of some of the
    course had resulted in greener fairways where the
    irrigation system had been installed and this had
    resulted in far better playing conditions and
    more members joining and more competitions being

Grant Writing Case Study 7
  • A number of fairways however were not irrigated
    and with the Qld heat and the drought these
    fairways were in less than ideal condition.
  • The club approached us for assistance and advice
    on the best strategy to pursue to have the extra
    fairways funded. The cost of the project was
    going to be around 50k. The initial strategy of
    our grant writer was to identify which funding
    programs would be an ideal fit for the project
    and if we needed to split the project into
    smaller sub projects and pursue more than one
    funding opportunity.

Grant Writing Case Study 7
  • After assessing the available funding programs
    through the local Council and State and Federal
    Government as well as some corporate funding
    opportunities we were able to identify that the
    State Governments Sport and Rec Get Playing
    program was an ideal fit.
  • The program focused on projects that increased
    participation in sport and our grant writer
    identified that the club had increased membership
    resulting from the past irrigation installation
    and therefore there was no doubt that irrigating
    the extra fairways would also result in increased
    participation rates.

Grant Writing Case Study 7
  • The only issue that our grant writer identified
    as a potential problem was that the club needed
    to contribute 20 of the project costs to be
    eligible for this grant. After discussions with
    the club the grant writer was able to be
    convinced that this contribution was affordable
    for the club.
  • In undertaking the grant writing process our
    grant writer set about proving beyond doubt that
    this project would increase participation numbers
    in the sport.

Grant Writing Case Study 7
  • To this end the grant writer worked with the
    club in surveying members and potential members
    as well as encouraging the club to contact
    schools, other non profit entities, businesses,
    retirement villages etc to develop partnerships
    with these entities and as a result encourage
    their members/students to come and use the club,
    have a hit of golf and maybe even join the club
    as a member.
  • We were able to get letters of support and
    commitments from these entities that they
    supported the clubs project and their
    members/students would use the improved
    facilities and together with the surveys we were
    able to prove that participation rates would soar
    if the currently dry fairways were irrigated.

Grant Writing Case Study 7
  • By ensuring that our clients project would
    achieve the outcomes of the funding program we
    were able to present an impressive case.
  • As a result of our grant writing skills the
    club was successful in winning this funding.
    Another great achievement by the grant writing
    team at Red Tape Busters.
