Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • Grant writing can be challenging even for the
    experienced grant writer.
  • Every year thousands of grant opportunities open
    and close, resulting in millions and probably
    billions of dollars becoming available to non
    profit organisations and businesses across
    Australia.
  • Competition for available grant money is immense
    and only the best submissions are successful in
    winning funding.
  • There are many hints and tricks that can help
    give you an improved chance of success.

Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • Here Are Just a few-
  • (1) Get your Local Politicians Onside -
  • This is a forgotten strategy that most non
    profit organisations or businesses would rarely
    consider.
  • But your local Councillor and local state and
    federal members of parliament move in powerful
    circles and a word of support to the right person
    could give your project an inside edge.

Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • I always suggest that my clients engage with
    their local politicians every say three months to
    update them on what the organisation/business is
    up to, how you are travelling and what your
    achievements are.
  • Keeping them informed can help you in many
    different ways but certainly it certainly wont go
    against you when it comes to funding.
  • Remember politicians love to get media attention
    and if your project in their electorate or their
    Council area wins funding then there is the
    prospect of media coverage and the local polly
    will jump at the chance to be involved.

6
Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • Make them work for you and actively seek their
    support and actually ask them if they can
    actively support your organisation/business by
    having a word with key players.
  • Also get them to be a referee for your
    organisation and project. Any support they can
    give you is better than none at all.
  • (2) Think laterally about your project or
    business concept -
  • If your project or business concept is the same
    as the organisation or business down the road
    the chances of you being successful in winning
    funding obviously diminishes.

Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • You need to think laterally and try and identify
    parts of your project or concept that are
    different, ground breaking, unique try and
    incorporate ideas that target what I call
    marginalised stakeholders or incorporate aspects
    to your project or business concept that might
    bring funding from alternate funding streams.
  • For instance if you can bring some of the
    following to the table when developing your
    project or business idea you will might be able
    to access a variety of different funding streams.

Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • The more ground work you can do in the planning
    stage to develop organisational/business goals
    and objectives the better chance you will be seen
    as a professional organisation or business worth
    funding.
  • We always encourage our clients to have a
    Strategic/Business Plan in place which is
    supported by a yearly Operational Plan and
    Project Plans for significant projects.
  • As mentioned above your projects or business
    concepts need to be well thought out, innovative
    and different to the run of the mill humdrum that
    organisations and businesses generally offer.

Grant Writing Advice and Tips
These are just a few tricks that might help those
chasing funding. Grant writing is not rocket
science but nor is it easy. Grant writers who
implement strategies that improve the chances of
success while reducing the prospects of failure
are the grant writers that are worth their money
their weight in gold. At Red Tape Busters we have
a team of those very grant writers!

Grant Writing Advice and Tips
  • arts/culture, sport/recreation, women, children,
    youth, health/wellbeing, Aboriginal and Torres
    Strait Islander, multicultural, disadvantaged,
    disabilities, remote, rural, isolated, have more
    avenues and homelessness.
  • These are some of the main foci of Government
    agencies and therefore there is funding generally
    available to support these initiatives.
  • (3) Proper planning prevents poor results -
  • Most organisations fail to plan which
    essentially means they could be planning to fail.
