FOR COMPANIES, ORGs & ARTISTS
Securing funding is increasingly competitive. But, for example, when people apply for grants over one third are rejected because they don’t meet the funder’s requirements*.
Perhaps another 25% are rejected because they don’t tell a compelling story. If only applicants realised this, and their applications were correctly targeted and written convincingly, then their chances of success would be greater and their frustrations reduced.
What would you be able to achieve if you could overcome these funding BLOCKS?
* Research by the Directory of Social Change (2012) research indicates that over one-third of applications to grantmaking charities are ineligible – meaning they do not fall within the funder’s stated guidelines and criteria. This is a huge waste of resources for funders and applicants.
