Grant writing toolkit

Leave a comment

The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) at Flinders University have launched an online toolkit for non-government agencies for doing grant and funding applications Fund Assist
 
The toolkit takes you through a step-by-step process to create a funding portfolio.  The portfolio provides a platform to document consistent messages and information about an organisation so that it is readily available for applications.  There is space to collate feedback received from past grant applications to ensure that mistakes may be corrected.  The site also provides detailed information on assessing the organisation’s track record and identifying strengths and opportunities.
 
Using the funding portfolio you are stepped through:
  • Funding evaluation criteria
  • Setting up a funding development team
  • Identifying funding sources
  • Developing a proposal
  • Writing the funding application
Each section is accompanied by activity sheets, links, videos, and resources, and each completed step can be exported in a Word document.
 
The website also has a database of funding sources and resources to help identify funding opportunities. 
 
The site is well presented and easy to navigate.  You’ll even find strategically placed comics throughout the material, such as the following:
 
As a general rule, if a website contains a Dilbert comic it’s both reliable and valid.  Retrieved from: NCETA 2014
