If you’re supporting communities that are bamboozled by funding application forms, or don’t know where to start when it comes to seeking grants, or they’ve written grants for years but lost all motivation to try again, then this training is for you. This interactive workshop will lead participants through a logical and light-hearted process for assessing eligibility, reality-checking likelihood of receiving funding and turning a project idea into a solid plan that funders will LOVE.

Facilitator Samantha Morris is a professional grant writer with 30 years experience working on projects just like yours. Having written proposals which have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars of funding for Australian communities, Sam now teaches other people how to smash their grant seeking goals by writing winning applications.

in this two-hour, online workshop we cover:


  • Common types of grants: government, corporate and philanthropic funding programs
  • What funding bodies are really looking for
  • Reality checking your project for its eligibility and likelihood of funding
  • How to interpret guidelines and make them work for you
  • Turning your project idea into a project plan
  • Budgets, buzzwords and tips to make your application smooth and logical
  • How to write a funding submission in just twenty minutes. True!
  • Where to get information about grants that are available

Past grant writing workshop locations

We’ve delivered hundreds of grant writing workshops to thousands of community workers over the past 30 years and have received nothing but positive feedback.

Past grant writing workshop locations have included regional Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania.

Our workshops often take place in locations that are regional or remote. We totally understand the unique challenges of navigating government and bureaucratic programs from out of the way locations. We love working with regional communities to increase grant writing success and there are special considerations for writing grants when you’re based outside of a metropolitan city.

We’ve run workshops from the tip of Cape York to the NSW border, from Wide Bay Burnett, out to Mount Isa, through the iconic Channel Country towns of Longreach, Barcaldine and Winton and right across the Darling Downs, Toowoomba and Maranoa. We’ve helped farmers get grants in Reef catchments from Bundaberg and Rockhampton to Mackay, Townsville and Cairns and we’ve helped graziers access natural disaster funding through the Northern and Southern Gulf and Gemfields of Central Queensland. If you’re working with a regional community that needs to improve its understanding of grant writing, you need to talk to us.
