43 Tips on writing successful funding applications 43

44 Before you start The idea: What (event / activity / project) do you want funding for? Who is the applicant? (organisation or individual) Who is the artist/s? The benefits and outcomes : Why is the project needed or important? (rationale) What will the project achieve or change? 44

45 Things to consider When is the best time to hold your project and how long will it take to fund and organise? (lead time and ‘turnaround’ time) Who is going to do all the work? How much will it cost? (budgeting expenditure) Where is the money? (budgeting income) Addressing the guidelines Finding and demonstrating support for your project 45

46 Quick Tips Start with an idea, not a desire to get a grant Define your project before you look at the forms Be brief, clear and make it sound exciting! Plan ahead – give yourself plenty of time Research funding agencies and their closing dates Read the guidelines and the aims and objectives Is your project right for this grant and agency? Does it fit the guidelines? If it fits, address each criteria Save as you go 46

47 Reality Checks 1.are you eligible? Do you need an ABN? Can an individual apply? Do you need an auspicing body? Check the eligibility criteria 2.what projects were funded in the last round? Read the list of successful applicants from previous rounds on funding bodies’ websites: is your project of similar quality / importance / relevance to guidelines/ Is you idea innovative or has it been done? much funding did approved projects get the last round? Consider how much you are likely to get from the agency and budget accordingly. Does the project require a funding partner? 4.have you contacted the agency? Contact the staff of the funding body to discuss the proposal, take notes of the discussions to incorporate in your application. you have the capacity to deliver? Don’t promise too much! Prepare a project timeline, including acquitting the grant. 47

48 Writing the application Aim to finish a week before the deadline to allow time to edit and review Do a step by step project plan, then budget to match it Address each and every one of the selection / assessment criteria – imagine you will get a score out of 10 for each one. Support material Find out what you need and don’t do overkill! Images / CDs, DVDs – check limits Include up-to-date CVs and other material asked to provide Make sure you have time to collect letters of support – and make it easy for the people you ask! 48

49 Recap – important concepts Defining your project - conversion of an idea into a project, try 150 words Benefits - professional, artist, audience, community Partnerships - community, business, local government, other agencies ‘Partners’ refer to individuals or organisations that will help make the project happen. The partners will work in collaboration with the applicant towards a shared vision and may contribute financially or in-kind to the project. 49

50 View from the other side Find out how funding applications are assessed Talk to the Program Manager or Program Officer Talk to the staff of your local Regional Arts Board Get a friend to read it – can they understand what you want to do? Find out who is making the decision Get experience assessing projects yourself Imagine yourself as an assessor – Is your idea clear and simple? – Does it fit the guidelines? – Is it special? Does it stand out? 50
