Teach yourself grant writing manual


Your definitive guide to navigating the grants system, incorporating:

  • Dispelling the myths about grants
  • Determining what the funder really wants from you
  • Understanding the requirements for funding
  • Making best use of available funder information resources
  • Nailing the criteria
  • Getting the numbers right
  • The application and post-application process


This manual is to help you put together grant applications that bring in the money. This program follows a proven technique based on a fundamental understanding of how grants work. If you do not understand this, then you may find yourself facing rejection and giving up after one, two, or three attempts, despondent and wondering what you’ve done wrong.

If you follow the guidance in this manual, you will start to enjoy that feeling of success. Imagine the sense of accomplishment when you attract your first $1,000, $2,000, $5,000 or $10,000 grant. Gain confidence and tune up the formula and you could soon be hitting six or seven figures for projects that make a big difference in people’s lives.

Teach Yourself Grant Writing will take you on a journey from understanding what grants are really about, to preplanning so that you are ready for the right opportunity and giving the answers the funders are really looking for, as well as a bonus guide on what to expect once you (or your client) get a grant offer.

Please note, this is a generic grant writing skills development tool and applies across most government and philanthropic funder situations. The skills you learn will apply using either formal grant application templates or when submitting a free form proposal. If you are intending on applying for medical and research grants, you may need to adopt a more sophisticated approach (beyond the purpose of this manual).

This manual will help you to:

  • Understand how grants and the grant-making process work so that you can propose a win-win situation that the funder will want to invest in.
  • Create a proposition that convinces the funder you are addressing a strong need with a well-planned solution with strong outcomes.
  • Gain confidence in writing applications across a wide platform of opportunities.
