Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • Grant writing can be a complex process which is
    not just about writing a grant. The experienced
    and skilled grant writer will do far more than
    just write a grant. The grant writer who is worth
    their weight in gold will write a great grant
    submission.
  • Quality grant writers will also assist the
    organisation to develop the best project concept,
    they will identify the best possible funding
    opportunity which will be relevant to the project
    requiring funding and then yes they will prepare
    a fantastic grant submission.

Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • At Red Tape Busters we are continually
    challenged by difficult projects and asked to
    chase funding for that project.
  • In one such situation I was approached by a
    rural Golf Club seeking funding to pay for a new
    financial management accounting software system.
  • Their old system was outdated and they needed to
    upgrade to keep pace with technology and software
    changes.

6
Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • Now generally financial management software and
    such an upgrade of a system would be deemed as an
    operational need and an operational expenditure
    and therefore would not be a fundable item. So
    the request posed some significant problems in
    being able to win funding.
  • Initially I decided to assess the project and
    identify if I could change the project from the
    purchase of financial management software to a
    broader project which was significantly more
    attractive to potential funders.

7
Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • I pondered on their requirement and also
    pondered on the club what it did, what regional
    area the club was located in, pondered on the
    issues which might be affecting that area and the
    people that lived there and also pondered on what
    project would be really attractive to funders
    which might address the needs of the club and
    also the local area.

Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • The project I came up with was to essentially
    have the financial management software as an
    after thought and a by-product or requirement
    of the bigger project. I suggested to the club
    that we implement a project where the club would
    partner with the local TAFE and work closely with
    the students from the Business Administration
    course.
  • The club could offer the TAFE and the students
    work experience in the club while
    studying/completing their studies and learn how
    to use the cash registers and learn the financial
    management system.

9
Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • Once the students had finished their course and
    undertaken work experience with the club, the
    club would arrange potential jobs with key
    employers across the region businesses and
    organisations who had links with the club or
    whose members were key personnel within those
    organisations or businesses.
  • In this way the project was focused on
    addressing youth unemployment in the area, giving
    them on the job experience to support their
    studies and then working with potential employers
    to get these young people a job.

Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • The only requirement the club had was to find a
    funder who would fund the upgraded software and
    system seeing this would be integral to the
    training.
  • Effectively the project had changed from a plain
    issue of being standard operational expenditure
    required to fund the purchase of financial
    management software to an employment program
    addressing the chronic unemployment issues for
    local youth in a drought affected area.

Grant Writing Case Study 1
  • A much more exciting and fundable project. We
    then identified the best program to pursue and
    with our quality grant writers prepare a great
    submission.
  • The result being that the club received 35k to
    purchase the software and system purely as a
    result of our strategic grant writing processes.
