"FIA's experience working with Jo Garner and her team at Strategic Grants was exceptional. The knowledge and expertise they brought to our grant application elevated it to a level that we could not have achieved on our own. The whole process was smooth and seamless. We were able to submit our application on time and with confidence knowing we had a strong submission thanks to Strategic Grants." Katherine Raskob, CEO
“The added value and support Strategic Grants’ monthly management process has provided has significantly boosted our internal capacity and capability and, in particular, given us the time and confidence to apply for a number of grants which otherwise would have been too big a stretch. The Strategic Grants team have also provided invaluable support in assisting with our application writing. This has enabled us to submit a number of high-quality applications for a wide range of complex projects in record time. We are looking forward to, and confident of, a highly successful 2021-2022 thanks to the ongoing support and expertise of Strategic Grants.”
“In 2021 Greenpeace Australia Pacific’s philanthropy team engaged Strategic Grants to apply their professional lens to a number of new prospective campaign funding proposals. On each occasion, Strategic Grants have responded quickly and enthusiastically, helping us to meet our deadlines in a timely way. This included the development of a longform Case for Support, as well as drafting an application for two foundations, one of which was successful and the other, currently pending. As a lean organisation with just 1.5 staff devoted to our philanthropy program, we are grateful to Strategic Grants for their ability to apply best-practice knowledge to our ambitious campaign proposals."
