How It Works

How It Works

Funding applications are a team effort. You know your school/group and I know what funders want to see (and NOT want to see) in an application. Using Google docs, together we create the necessary documents. I talk you through these, helping you find YOUR words to tell your particular story of your need for funding. The first application becomes your template for subsequent applications. Therefore the cost of my service becomes cheaper as you do most of the work. I work with you from the start of all applications to guide you through the process and review what you compile, suggesting changes and amendments and sourcing the most appropriate funder to apply to.
