New free toolkit to securing grant funding

New free toolkit to securing grant funding

London-based grants consultancy the Lewis Clare Partnership has published a free 8-page guide to help organisations increase their effectiveness in securing grant funding.

The guide covers key elements of the grantseeking process so would be useful to those just starting out in applying for grants. It covers initial preparation, ensuring good communication, putting in the groundwork, completing the application, and following through.

The guide can be downloaded at no charge from the Lewis Clare Partnership website. It evolved from the Partnership’s experience in appraising grant applications, and the errors that were common to many.

The guide, “Granting you the Money – a guide to securing grant funding”, is the latest in a series of free guides from the Partnership. Others include “Surfing the Grants Process – using the Web to increase efficiency and effectiveness” and “Open SESAME – a guide to setting up a new grant scheme.”
