Plan your funding grant application and share benefits

GRANTS are a great income resource for sports clubs to fund an activity, upgrade facilities or other club projects.

Given there is usually a limited time to submit an application, planning is vital to meet all the requirements of the application and to have the best chance of success.

Here's some tips on how to be proactive.

Document club projects listing important information such as estimated cost, time frames, and purpose of project. A strategic plan is useful.

Read and understand the complete funding announcement. Ensure that your club is eligible, meets the funding agencies goals and objectives.

Follow the guidelines.

Determine whether your club can contribute to the project - with support or money.

Contact the grant provider to clarity any grey areas.

Have someone external to the project planning read your application and provide feedback.

Submit with all required supporting documentation and within the timeframe.
