Tip of the Month – February 2014

 

You know what you want, but does the funder understand your application quickly?

Have you noticed it is easier to correct someone else’s writing but not your own. The reason for this is because as we are the creator of that text, we become too attached to our words and often read more than what is actually in writing.

Ask someone to look over your application to see if it makes sense and matches the funding objectives sufficiently – this could be a someone in your club with experience in grant writing, staff from your regional Sports Assembly, a local government officer, a regional branch of the funding agency.

Tanya, Locky and Bob from Sports Central are happy to look over your grant applications today!
