Before you contact us

Think a grant might be helpful? First ensure you know the strategic direction of your organisation and the activities or infrastructure you'd like to have funded. 

Preparing to write a grant? Do you know what to do, the documents required and the steps involved? We can help.

Engaging us to run a workshop to teach your team about grant writing or preparing a winning business case? Excellent - we'd love to hear from you.

Applying for a grant? It's not essential, but ideally prior to contacting us you should have an idea of the grant you wish to apply for and have an outline of your proposal.  Finding a grant is free. If you haven't identified funding yet, Grant Ready's a handy resource. 

Business case to prepare? It's helpful if you know the bare bones of your proposal and the timeline you'd like us to work to before you call.

 

Timelines + turnaround

How long it takes depends on the extent of the work required and the level of research and supporting documentation you're able to provide. Usually, the greater the grant, the more time we'll require to work on it.

We routinely work after-hours and offer a weekend service by arrangement - brief us on Friday afternoon (ideally earlier) and if you've provided all of the necessary background and supporting material, we'll work on your application over the weekend and where possible, have it completed and in your inbox by 9am Monday.

When you contact us, to help us best serve your inquiry we recommend that you first describe your project and tell us what you want to achieve.  Our general response time is one business day.
