Are you passionate about a project but need funding to get it up and running?

Corangamite Shire Council’s grant application writing workshop is designed to help you write better funding applications.

Corangamite Shire Mayor Jo Beard invited individuals and members of community organisations or not-for-profit groups to come along and learn what makes a good application.

“This is an opportunity to hear directly from the funding decision makers about what they look for when deciding who gets financial assistance, and who doesn’t,” Cr Beard said.

“Presenters from Council, the South West Community Foundation, Regional Development Victoria, Regional Arts Victoria, and philanthropic funds will share tips on how to approach funders, and the importance of building partnership and networks.

“They will also explain the nuts and bolts of preparing budgets and timelines that they consider when deciding whether supporting a particular applicant is a good investment,” Cr Beard said.

“If you’re seeking funding, you can’t afford to miss out on this workshop because getting your application right can make all the difference when it comes to getting funding to turn your plans into reality.”

Participants will also be provided with lists of grants available that might be appropriate for their particular project.

The workshop will be at the Killara Centre, 210 Manifold Street, on Monday 19 March, from 7 pm—9 pm.

Another will be held at the Moyne Shire Council Community Services Centre, 16 Atkinson Street, Port Fairy, on Sunday 25 March, from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.

To register, contact Regional Arts Victoria’s Creative Arts Facilitator, Great South Coast, Jo Grant at jgrant@rav.net.au or on 5568 0560 and specify which location you’re registering for.

Light refreshments will be provided so please advise of any dietary requirements.
