“I asked Strategic Grants to critique a previous years application for funding. They were very quick in turning around the critique and provided helpful suggestions and amendments which I can see will have a really positive impact on my grant application this year.”  Verity Appleby, Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia

Cool Australia

Heart Foundation

"Having conducted an in-depth review of Heart Foundation's grants program, Strategic Grants has worked with the Heart Foundation to establish centralised strategies to best position the organisation for grants success. This has been successful in changing and establishing new and effective processes as we continue to work towards building an effective grants program."  Heart Foundation

Macquarie University

"We have been using the Strategic Grants GEM Portal since 2016 and have had great results. It has helped us to communicate funding opportunities with academics, as well as to assist us with increasing the culture of philanthropy across the university. We have also worked with the Strategic Grants team to educate our academics on how to rework previous applications, including Category 1 research grants, for philanthropic funders."  Macquarie University

Queensland University of Technology

"If you have a small fundraising team like ours, but within a big organisation, you can get pulled in many directions. Having the Strategic Grants funding alerts drop right into my email really helps me refocus on core priorities. Also, the searchable Grants Calendar is invaluable as it enables us to tailor funding opportunities by category; terrific when seeking to focus on a specific priority, e.g. marine conservation."  Queensland University of Technology

Flinders University

"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


"GEM Portal has revolutionised grant management at Youngcare. It has maximised efforts for the Fundraising and Management Team by drastically reducing the amount of time required to search for upcoming foundation deadlines, and to record each interaction and the project that has been submitted. We have found that with the aid of GEM Portal we can pull off enhanced reports for the Board to see where each application is at, and demonstrate the work that is taking place to secure much-needed funds; and it has also allowed me to get a clear indication of the success of my team in this area. The team at Strategic Grants are an extension of Youngcare. They work with our organisation to learn and fully understand about what we aim to achieve in the coming year and as a result are able to advise key staff on the relevant foundations that we can apply to. All of this is recorded in the GEM Portal. It takes much of the work out of investigating grants. I believe the cost of GEM Portal has had huge cost-saving implications and supported raised income levels for Youngcare from trusts and foundations - very impressive!"  Youngcare

MS Ltd

"In early-2018 Multiple Sclerosis Ltd appointed Strategic Grants to review our Grant-seeking ability and add some process authority to the approach we were taking. Although MS had been quite successful in generating trusts and foundations income in support of our work to help people living with multiple sclerosis, we knew there was greater potential and that we could be more efficient. The work of Strategic Grants, backed up by their powerful grants research, evaluation and management tools, has enabled us to consider scaling-up grant-seeking investment and to improve the quality of our applications. We are also working with Strategic Grants to streamline internal processes and see strong opportunities for efficiency gains from this over the next year. I can comfortably recommend partnering with Strategic Grants to improve the grant-seeking outcomes of any committed non-profit organisation."  MS Ltd
