Essentials in Application Writing

September 20 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

This one-day course will provide helpful information and tips to build skills in writing strong applications for funding – whether grants from trusts/foundations or statutory bids. With practical exercises to improve writing, budgeting, and evaluation skills, anyone can produce a strong application provided they understand what is required, undertake thorough research and are tenacious.

This training session is free to attend for staff and volunteers working in museums/heritage organisations in Cornwall. It is funded by SW Museum Development and Cornwall Museums Partnership.

Who is it for?

  • Fundraising and development staff and volunteers working in museums who wish to gain helpful tips and are looking to refresh their knowledge in this area.
  • Those new to writing fundraising proposals.

Why should you attend?

Do you know how to create a clear and concise standard funding bid? Are you thinking through your projects carefully enough? Are your numbers right? Are you gathering the right evidence and making the right arguments? Are you answering the questions funders will ask themselves about your application?

If no to any of the questions above, this course is for you.
