Description

2018 Grantseeker Information Forum

We will be in Darwin on Thursday 30 August. Meet CEO, Craig Connelly, and the program management team to hear about what, why and how we fund. This FREE EVENT is a special opportunity for NT-based charitable organisations to gain insights into our assessment processes, pick up 'top tips' for writing a winning grant application and learn about our project evaluation framework.

  • How can NFP's attract philanthropic funding for their project or organisation?

  • What do funders look for?

  • How can NFPs maximise their chances of receiving a grant?

  • If successful, what are the grantee's obligations to the grantmaker?

The Forum runs for the morning and will include sessions on specific program areas, sessions on setting KPIs and good evaluation practices run by our Research & Evaluation Manager Dr Squirrel Main, plus a session on budgets and financials run by our CEO Craig Connelly.

Please note: There are several concurrent sessions, so please select carefully which sessions you would like to attend when making your booking.

For grantseekers a critical part of any grant application is preparing the project budget. Similarly, when deciding to fund a project, it is important for the funder to understand the financial position of the organisation seeking support.

Our CEO, Craig Connelly, will explain what program managers are looking for in a project budget and what the Foundation needs to see in an organisation's financial reports (i.e. annual report) when reviewing a grant application.
