Get Ready : Grant-Writing Toolkit

Do you need to raise money?

Do you need to get back in (or maybe just get in) to the grant-writing game? Now is the time and Truffle Pig is here to help. In 4 weeks you can get the vital building blocks of successful grant applications.

This in-demand course sold out in five days, and is now supporting youth, music, theatre, food and active travel organisations to upgrade their fundraising skills and get drafts ready to submit.

Many funds are re-opening soon, but we have seen a pattern of new funds closing after 5 days. You must have strong, well-developed applications ready to go as soon as funds open. Our clients are acting now to secure their income for 2021.

Why work with us?

Truffle Pig creates funding plans and hundreds of applications a year for organisations across Scotland and the UK. We’ve raised millions for community, food, youth and arts organisations and saved organisations from the brink of closure. This short and practical course is packed with grant-writing guidance to make sure you are positioned to access funding as soon as it opens. Let us tell you exactly how to plan, create and submit successful applications for just a few hours a week, and transform your fundraising.

The Course

Week 1 – Strategy – know the most fundable parts of your work, find funders

Week 2 – Method – avoid common mistakes, most effective ways to draft, edit and hit deadlines

Week 3 – Planning – timeline your programmes and create a well-crafted funding budget (the secret to covering core costs)

Week 4 – Impact – blow funding panels away with outstanding outcomes, indicators, evidence and evaluation

I had a fear of applying for funding, now I have the beginnings of a budget, a pitch to sell my project and a list of organisations who will consider my work. I feel encouraged, listened to and understood” – Youth Theatre Arts Scotland Truffle Pig Workshop Attendee
