“Prior to subscribing to GEM Portal I would spend hours searching the internet to find funds, let alone funds that were relevant to our organisation. Now this can be easily be done through the filter function in the calendar. The Applications tab gives a quick snap shot of my work load, what I have already completed, what is in progress and what still to be done. The calendar dates help me decide how to prioritise my funding work and allows me to plan how much time I can spend on other things.
The Strategic Grants team is friendly and offers expert advice and assistance. They take the time to get a sound understanding of the organisations purpose and drive, and provide tailored support. Because they understand our purpose we feel they have a genuine desire to help us succeed and this is reflected in their commitment to helping us with our application writing and assisting us to secure funding” Te Huia Taylor, Te Whare Hukahuka
