Our funding bid isn't about what we want, but what our beneficiaries need and the grant funder wants. We are meeting a real need, not just chasing funding. We’ve looked at the funder’s website/annual reports to see if they’ve funded projects like ours before.
Our bid meets the funding criteria - they are a funder of our type of charity and the work we want to apply for.
Our bid includes the information, facts and/or figures, to make the case for funding, explains why we are best placed to deliver the project, and conveys the urgency of the need and the difference the project will make.
Our funding bid is succinct (brief and clear) and will be understood by those reading it. Our bid is also emotionally engaging – people give to people and want to know that their funding will make a difference to an issue that matters to them.
Succinct - briefly and clearly expressed.
Jargon - professional terminology or slang expression that not everyone will understand.
Acronym - an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word - BBC.
Plus, 60+downloadable funder lists, 40+ policies, 8 online health checks and the huge resource base. Nearly half of our tens of thousands of members rate us 10/10.
