This workshop provides an overview of the end-to-end process of securing funding for social purpose organisations. If you are new to, or need a refresher in, seeking funding from governments (local, state and federal), philanthropics and other commissioning bodies, this workshop is for you!
Get Funded is conducted in a practical environment, focusing on the key components of the fund-seeking process. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and have them answered by the facilitator along the way, as well as learn from others working in similar areas.
At the end of the workshop, you'll receive the Get Funded handbook, which includes a summary of the workshop content and templates and checklists that you can use straight away.
We encourage workshop participants to stick around after the session to network over a complimentary tea, coffee, beer or wine. Networking with other like minded people and organisations is a great way share learnings.
