Free grant writing workshop

Free grant writing workshop

Released: 14 June 2017

A free Macedon Ranges Shire Council workshop on Thursday 29 June will aim to help volunteers, not-for-profit community groups and organisations improve their grant writing skills.  

This practical workshop, to be held at Woodend Community Centre on the corner of Forest and High streets in Woodend from 7pm to 9pm, will provide participants with tips and techniques on writing grant applications.  

Mayor, Cr Jennifer Anderson said the course would breakdown the grant writing process, and encouraged representatives from community groups and organisations to come along.  

“Grant writing requires a particular set of skills and understanding, and this workshop is designed to unpack the jargon, interpret the criteria and clearly explain what’s involved in writing a grant.  

“The workshop will cover how to find grants and develop a grants plan, and at the end of it, participants should be able to walk away from this with a much clearer idea of how to interpret grant criteria and fine tune their applications,” Cr Anderson said.  

The free workshop will be delivered by Our Community, Australia’s largest provider of training and resources for the not-for-profit sector.  

Places are limited and bookings are essential.
