From Idea to Reality – How to Write Successful Fundraising Applications

Learn how to strengthen your funding bids, demonstrate impact and get expert advice.

At the start of June, we held a full day workshop on bid-writing. We were joined by a really wide range of people from individuals, local community groups and school representatives to employees of national organisations. We all had one thing in common: new project ideas.

BFER asked Scott Sullivan, fundraising extraordinaire from Resources 4 Change to teach us all how to write a successful fundraising application to take these projects from idea to reality. It was an excellent workshop and we all left inspired and encouraged with heads full of expert advice.

We were so inspired by the projects discussed on the day and encouraged by the insights and shared experiences – we will try to keep up with the progress of all the projects getting started and will share the news when any funding applications are successful following this training. Good luck everyone!

The good news is, if you missed the workshop, the presentation and fundraising guide are now available for everyone! See them below or on the Funding section of our Resources Page.
