Finding Funding and Winning Grants (in-person)

Date: 27 Sep 2022


Please note this session is SOLD OUT. We'll be running another in May 2023. Click here for more details.

Fundraising is the lifeblood of most community organisations, yet it’s an often-neglected task. Most organisations draw the majority of their income from just one or two sources. That’s a dangerous strategy. If one of those sources dries up, you could quickly face a budget black hole.

To survive and thrive in a changing world, a not-for-profit organisation must develop a fundraising plan that rests on these seven pillars of fundraising:

  1. Grants
  2. Donations
  3. Crowdfunding
  4. Membership
  5. Events
  6. Sales
  7. Sponsorship

With around $80 billion given out in grants across Australia each year, this session will take an in-depth look at writing a proposal to ensure your organisation is getting its share of the money on offer.

This course is designed for grassroots community groups that want to find out where to find funding, and how to win it.
