NFP Not For Profit are running a series of workshops on effective Bid Writing. They state:
Do you know the most common reasons for rejection? Are you gathering the right evidence? Are you making the right arguments? Are you using the right terminology? Are your numbers right? Are you learning from rejections? Are you assembling the right documents? Do you know how to create a clear and concise standard funding bid? Are you communicating with people or just excluding them? Do you know your own organisation well enough? Are you thinking through your projects carefully enough? Do you know enough about your competitors? Are you answering the questions funders will ask themselves about your application? Are you submitting applications correctly?
Staff members, volunteers, trustees or board members of charities, schools, not for profits or public sector organisations who intend to submit grant funding applications to charitable grant making trusts and foundations. People who provide advice to these organisations are also welcome.
£95 including booking fees. Start time 09.00. Finish time 11.30. Refreshments provided. Attendees receive full notes and sample bids by e-mail after the workshop. The workshop consists of talk, questions and answers. There are no power points or audio visuals used. All places must be booked through the online booking system using a debit or credit card. We do not issue invoices or accept bank or cheque payments. If you do not have a debit card from your organisation please use a personal one and claim reimbursement using the booking confirmation e-mail as proof of purchase.
