From time to time we get asked to provide advice to people wanting to put together their own grant application. We have a service through Zoom (recorded) or via phone for people looking for direction. Contact us at support@thecommunityentrepreneur.com with your request and we’ll get back to you. 

Project management is a skill set that adds value to the grant application. Good project planning means that the proposed program is more likely to be delivered on time, on budget and as promised. Good project planning also means that all project staff and partners are on the same page and committed, that your communication channels will work properly and that you’ve considered the risks. 

Project Management in a Box is a manual and training program complete with templates and checklists including recommendations for Terms of Reference, MOUs, communication strategies, work/task breakdown and budget planning.

A successful grant application clearly demonstrates how you will know you have achieved the outcomes the funder is looking for. A good project evaluation plan also considers your specific outcomes and what you will do with them. How do you measure the impacts of change? All change is measurable when planned from the start. After spending three years training community groups/partnerships skills in measuring impacts across Victoria for a government program, we incorporate evaluation into our grant writing coaching program, into our clients’ grant submissions and are also available for training and mentoring. Contact us to get started.

Call us or make an appointment to talk about how we can help you with your grant writing journey.  Not sure?  You’re welcome to read the articles and watch the videos to help you make up your mind that we’re what you’re looking for.

Grant Writing Articles

Have just had a mind blowing session with Patricia. A heart centred and mind blowing knowledgeable force to be reckoned with re advice about my start up business “Real Fringe Hair Bands”, and thoughts on grants we may be able to apply for. So selfless … Brilliant question asked, and leader, but most of all, listener. I can often take the long way around to make a point … and she helped me navigate my way through grants and entitlements mumbo jumbo and explain it in a way by nursing ears could comprehend. She got in my world and felt my passion.

Five reasons to evaluate your project

  • Are running or planning to run a community project
  • Want to know how well your project is travelling to achieve your expected outcomes
  • Have ever been involved in a project and at the end you weren’t sure what to do next
  • Want to know the basics of project evaluation

    (the project journey rarely travels in a straight line to the destination – the fun part is figuring out why)

Putting together a business case for a grant

Before you begin, put together a business case for why you need a grant and the implications for your organisation.

What will be the implications for resources and will you be able to meet contractual requirements?
