Top tips! – How To Get Funding – Notes from Andrew Devon’s Talk

May 10, 2010

 Top tips!

Completing Forms!

  1. Check spelling and grammar on the PC
  2. Get someone else to read the application from outside the organisation
  3. Cut excessive use of jargon
  4. Don’t waffle
  5. Don’t assume that the assessor will know what you do
  6. If you are quoting statistics or information put a reference as to where they came from
  7. If you are giving numbers of people you are helping be exact as possible – e.g. rather saying we help 100 people use 102 as this may appear more real
  8. Check budgets add up
  9. Don’t leave writing applications to the last minute as this causes stress
  10. Make sure that if you need an extra signatory that this person is around to sign the form and that you can still submit it on time
