Defib For Life have been searching around for some useful tips on writing a grant application and have provided the following link to help clubs in the process. https://www.fundingcentre.com.au/help/writing-grant

Most clubs nominate one person to identify and submit grant applications but ideally clubs should nominate a small group of people to work together on grant applications. The more grant applications your club writes the better your grant applications will become.

Once you have identified the grant your club wishes to apply for, the most critical part of the application process is to fully understand the objectives of the grant provider.

Make sure you answer all the questions in the grant application and provide all supporting information requested, such as financial statements, plans or quotes.
