Writing Better and Effective Funding Applications

Despite their simple layout and straightforward questions, writing effective funding applications can be complicated but not a difficult undertaking. Due to funding cuts and the resulting increase in demand for charitable services, competition for funding appears to be tougher than ever. There is now more emphasis on writing clear and more compelling fundraising 'asks'.

Learning outcomes:

  • Improved ability to plan and write good quality funding applications.
  • Increased knowledge of funders’ expectations and what they look for in a successful funding application.
  • Increased knowledge of why funding applications fails and how to avoid common mistakes.
  • Access to testimony from successful organisations sharing their experience in fundraising. 

Who is it for?

This course is for management committee members, organisations’ leaders and project managers working for refugee and migrant community organisations who need to improve their knowledge and experience of writing funding applications. Only MRCOs based in London are eligible to attend this training.
