Preparing your application
After wrapping up our General Grants program in 2020 we consulted past grant recipients to find out what they learned from completing grant funded projects.
Speaking to twenty organisations, we found that many had similar experiences and common suggestions for how they considered success. We gathered these insights in the Lessons from Practice General Grants review.
This review uncovers five key factors that helped foster project success and a range of practical tips for all stages of the project life cycle. These shared insights may help organisations to create long lasting and sustainable programs and resources.
Among the many insights there is a focus on information to help organisations create projects that are sustainable in effectively using resources. There are also insights on creating partnerships, reaching audiences and case study examples throughout.
