Grant Writing for Not For Profits is near and dear to our hearts at Write My Grant. We have helped a multitude of non-profit organisations, associations, inventors, sporting groups and clubs successfully secure funding for their projects across a wide range of industries.
Not For Profits rely heavily on grants, charity work, donations and club memberships to raise the necessary funds to support their work, run events, cover staff payroll and associated administration costs, take care of marketing, and contribute to their immediate community, society as a whole and/or the health and well-being of the planet.
Community Grants and funding schemes are available to you through many government grants, and philanthropic (including community organisations and private trusts) and corporate foundations.
A popular funding source in the Not For Profit Grant arena is the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) budget of large corporations. CSR is a form of corporate self-regulation that has been integrated into business models. It allows the organisation to monitor and actively ensure they comply with laws, ethical standards and national or international norms. The opportunity for non-profit groups is that some large corporations allocate CSR funding for philanthropic endeavours. It creates a path for the corporation to improve public relations and demonstrate high ethical standards.
There are many other funding opportunities out there as well, and Write My Grant stays attuned to these, so we can advise you on the most valuable options. Write My Grant will research those funding choices and determine which you are eligible for and which are closely aligned to your mission and objectives.
When preparing your grant submission, Write My Grant will cover all of the basics such as describing your organisation, listing your (and your teams’) qualifications, community support (particularly with regards to Community Grants), and defining the ‘need’ or ‘problem’ your project fulfills or solves. This data will be backed by quantified research, documentation and case studies.
Your application will communicate the passion that drives you and your organisation on this mission, and use your “story” (your journey) to capture the imagination and heart of the funding body’s readers.
