Is your community group or not-for-profit thinking of applying for a grant? Not sure where to start?
The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR), in conjunction with Australia Post, have released a 13-part video series that will help you understand the grant seeking process. Local leaders who have previously secured grants share their insights about what makes a great project.
While these videos were created in a pre-COVID world, the insights and tips are just as relevant now — even though delivery of projects or ideas may have to change.
Topics covered include:
- Involve your community
- Gather your supporters
- Gather your team
- Collaborate for success
- Create a realistic plan
- Keep the community informed
- Follow your passion
- Finding and applying for grants
- Identify sources of diverse funding
- Set yourself up for financial success
- Understand the funding requirements
- Ways to evaluate success
- Share your results
Each segment is only a minute or so long, so it won’t take up much of your time — but we highly recommend anyone looking at applying for any grant, whether through FRRR or another funding body, watch these videos BEFORE commencing the application process!
