Grant strategies to build nonprofit capacity

To achieve our vision of building the capacity of organisations, we support nonprofits to develop skills and apply strategic thinking to their service delivery and fundraising programs.

Grants Advisory & Mentoring Services



We provide expert advice to help your team ensure they are identifying the strongest funding prospects,
developing relationships with funders, and following best-practice grant-seeking strategies.


Grants Application Critiquing & Writing



Don’t have the time or expertise internally to prepare high-quality applications?  Depending on your organisation’s
unique needs, our highly experienced team can offer writing services, or can develop your staff’s skills and capacity
by providing comments, edits and feedback on their applications.


Key Messages Document Development

A comprehensive Key Messages document clearly defines what your organisation is all about and your 
point of difference.


Preparation of Cases for Support

The Strategic Grants team can work together with your organisation to research, write and manage design
for your organisation’s next Case for Support.

gearsProgram Evaluation

We can help you understand the change your organisation creates, through performance monitoring and 
outcomes evaluation, and help you report to your donors and funders on your programs in a meaningful way.

gearsServices For Funders

We collaborate with funders to review grant-making intent, guidelines and application processes, and also to share
their experiences with charities, to help bridge the divide between grant-seekers and grant-makers. Many funders
support and attend the Strategic Grants training program, helping to ensure that grant-seekers are applying best practice.
