Yes, I am going nuts.
Hence this short but useful post. My top three tips on how to apply for a community grant.
1. Make sure the grant is a good fit for your school or organisation.
2. Have a clear idea of what you want the money for - and be able to articulate that within the guidelines.
3. Read the guidelines.
If you need more tips (what, you're not an expert now?), check out this story that I wrote for Ninemsn's Money website. It's called How to Apply For a Grant. I found it very helpful. I just wish I'd got one of the helpful experts I interviewed to apply for this grant for me.
Now that would have been very useful.
Have you ever applied for a grant for your school or sporting organisation? Any exciting tips or insight to share? Alternately, want to write mine for me???
