Take the steps to successful grant fundraising with our bitesize learning videos created with funding from the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. This series provides essential insights into grant applications, covering strategy, planning, and delivery. Recognising the challenges faced by organisations without dedicated fundraisers, our recordings offer practical knowledge and tools to maximise the effectiveness of your grant fundraising efforts.

Who are these recordings for?

These recordings are for Trustees, CEOs and Senior Managers of homelessness organisations who are looking to build on their knowledge, skills and understanding of grant applications.

Why are they relevant?

  • We understand from our members that there is a need for learning around how to write better grant applications
  • We recognise that not all homelessness services have a dedicated professional fundraiser, and often teams are writing applications on top of their day jobs
  • Finding time to complete grant applications can be a challenge, so it is important that people have the knowledge and understanding to make the most of the time they can dedicate to grant funding.

What are the key takeaways?

  • Understand the foundations needed for success in grant fundraising: trustee responsibilities for fundraising; grant fundraising to deliver your mission; and tools to ensure grant fundraising meets your needs
  • Types of grant fundraising: what grant funding is; different types of grant fundraising; and finding the right fit for your charity
  • Effective planning for grant fundraising: how to find potential funders; deciding whether to apply; and building a pipeline
  • Creating winning bids: types of applications; understanding grant assessors; and using the right language
