Grant Writing Services

Is your organisation applying for funding and unsure where to start?

Not-for-profits and community organisations have never been more pressed for time and resources, but organisations are expected to demonstrate greater maturity, innovation, and capability in grants and proposals. Valuable staff that should be meeting KPIs should not spend their time writing grants.

Hiring a professional grant writer to support your organisation through the grant application is one way to move ahead of your competition.

Amanda understands the demands facing NFPs and NGOs. Prior to working as a grant and tender writer, she worked in the NFP sector in a client-facing role, and designed and delivered award-winning projects in both metro and remote Australia.

Amanda has been writing winning grant applications in the small business, disability, Indigenous services, arts, sports, and community services sectors since 2007.

Amanda offers a grant search service, and provides advice to clients on suitable grants. Working with your team, she will guide them through the application process, including working with them on

  • budgets,
  • writing support letters,
  • personnel profiles, and
  • content.

An experienced researcher, Amanda also helps your team find relevant academic research to help support your project proposal.

Contact Amanda for a confidential discussion about how she can support your organisation to develop a grant application.
