Funding Connection is a specialist nationwide funding consultancy service working with schools, registered charities and not-for profit organisations. We draw on your knowledge of your school/group, your purpose and need for funding and show you how to compile a concise funding application for maximum impact!
Funding Connection came about as a result of a need. While bringing up my son who is on the Autistic Spectrum, I learned that to meet students’ needs and requirements, schools needed funding, further to what they received from the Ministry of Education.
Research to source funding to support my son’s learning needs was invaluable. Further research to support other children with specific needs identified more funding opportunities. While this funding was for special equipment at home, and learning outside the classroom, the needs were the same; to meet the well being, learning, inclusive, and educational needs of our children.
I was empowered to make a difference in schools to ensure they were accessing all the funding providers they were eligible to apply to; not just the ones they apply to year after year.
Working from my Lower Hutt office, Funding Connection was established in May 2015 with the purpose of showing schools, registered charities and not-for-profit organisations all over New Zealand how to compile a concise funding application for maximum impact!
The funders you are eligible to apply to is determined by your location and community you serve. This means, it doesn’t matter where you are in New Zealand, as long as you are a school, registered with the Charities Commission or are an Incorporated Society, you are eligible to apply for funding from the funders I work with.
Compiling a concise funding application is a team effort. While you provide the information about your group and need for funding, I show you what funders want and need in an application.
Together, we create an application that packs a punch!
Avoid common pitfalls that may mean your application is not even considered
