New for 2020: Show Me the Money: Keys to Successful Grant Applications

Wed 12 Feb 10am -12pm, Church House, Derby - BOOK NOW

Mon 08 Jun 7pm -9pm, St Thomas, Brampton - BOOK NOW

Matching your cause to their goals is at the very heart of getting grant making bodies to splash the cash, and so a successful grant application begins way before you start looking for the money. Here are some of the crucial questions to ask yourself along the way and this session will begin to unpack them.

• What’s your vision and what do you actually need?

• Who are your stakeholders and how are they involved?

• Does your project deliver the outcomes you want?

• Where’s the rest of the finance coming from?

• Can you sustain the project after the funding period?

 

These sessions are open to all, but booking is essential.
