Let me show you how to write better grant applications…

Would you like to apply for grants, but don’t know where to start?

Have you applied for a grant before and the silence has been deafening in reply?

Does it all seem too big or too hard?

You are not on your own…

Tackling grant applications can be overwhelming with a million questions and the need to supply endless words, budgets and supporting documents – all within a very short time frame.

Don’t worry, I can help you research and write stronger grant applications.

I have been writing grants for around 30 years and have learned a few tips and tricks along the way. Let me show you how to take some of the mystery out of what makes a solid and successful grant application.

Ask me about:

  • Running a face-to-face workshop for your group or business.
  • Providing a mentoring service as you work your way through an application.
  • Reviewing your finished product and providing some fresh eyes on ways to improve what you have drafted, or
  • Writing the whole darn thing!

Happy to chat about which option works best for you.

Have a great day and Good Luck! Melanie
