Grant Writing & Grant Application Reviews

Our team of experienced grant writing experts help write hundreds of successful grant applications! These include nonprofit grant application submissions to government, philanthropic and corporate foundations. We can write your entire grant application, or we can review your team’s submission.

Grant application writing

When writing your not-for-profit grant application, we meet with your team online to go through your project’s goals against the funder’s guidelines. We then make sure that you have spoken to the funder and have confirmed their submission criteria. We then start drafting your grant application, highlighting early where there is missing information. Grant application drafts are provided, highlighting missing information and incorporating your teams’ feedback. Once we are all happy with the final grant application, we help you lodge it AHEAD of the deadline.

Grant application reviews

Grant application reviews ensure that you have answered all the questions, clearly and succinctly. We highlight missing content and evidence and submit the necessary edits, so your grant application is at its best, by tracking changes that increase readability. Comments throughout the grant application document give you a list of questions to answer and additional information to gather to write the best grant application possible.

Strategic Grants ensures your grant application writing is done in a timely manner, ensuring you have enough time to work with our team to submit your application ahead of the funding deadline!

“The team at Strategic Grants have been fantastic, with incredibly helpful advice, willingness to visit us at our institution, and a fantastic Grants workshop. They are so contactable and communicative and offer advice above and beyond. They have worked closely with our organisation to learn and fully understand about what we aim to achieve in the coming year(s) and as a result we are anticipating huge cost-saving implications and supported raised income levels for Flinders University, from trusts and foundations. Couldn’t recommend more highly and look forward to a continuing relationship.”  Flinders University

Tailored grant writing services

Our non-profit grant writing services are tailored to whatever level of support you need. It may be a one-off grant application review, or a project to write many not-for-profit grant applications or government tenders.

You can even work with our grant writing team on a longer-term basis through our Monthly Management service offering.

We can also develop your Grants Case for Support and Key Messages documents. Key Messages will ensure that all your messages are consistent across all your communication channels.

The winning grant writing tip! Leave no unanswered questions in the funders’ minds.
