Funding Applications: A Practical Guide

23 July 2021

Advice on what to consider when creating your grant application, looking at key points you need to consider when approaching funders and writing/pitching.

In this recorded ‘webinar workshop’, we will explore some key points you need to consider when approaching funders and writing/pitching to them. Layla Moosavi, DSC Associate trainer, will share good guidance and practice for writing funding applications and take you through a couple of practice exercises to help you get your pitch right. Looking at real funders criteria, including Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good Awards, we look at:
1. How to define funder priorities 
2. Key information you need to collate for your proposals
3. What is the difference between what trusts and foundations need and what corporate sponsors need in written applications?
4. What is a Case for Support and how do you use it in your proposals?
