Mentoring session

Sorting out grants is easy with a mentoring session.

Example of a one-to-one grant session with Prue Saxby and committee members discussing grant strategy.
A mentoring session will help you create momentum and get clarity on your projects and grant process.

Is a looming grant deadline on your mind and you need direction to get a grant organised?

Or, is the idea of creating a grant strategy for your projects stopping you and your committee from progressing funding applications?

Organising grants can be lonely and frustrating, often because other people don’t understand what’s involved. And this is even more difficult if you have a very small team to help you.

A mentoring session could be just what you need. In a Grant Writer In Your Back Pocket session you will get access to all Prue’s experience, ideas and grant knowledge, and enjoy clarity and direction.

Having someone to brainstorm with can be a huge help because you will get a fresh and unbiased perspective. In the last six years, Prue has helped clients gain more than $51.8M in grants so is likely to have struggled with the same problems as you.

With help from her team Prue regularly creates a range of documents to send in with grant applications. These include budgets, needs analyses, cost-benefits, project plans, risk charts, community consultation…and more.

Who are these sessions for?

One-to-one sessions are perfect if you’re needing help with your grant proposal. We’ve got heaps of experience helping non-for-profits, community groups, P&Cs, charities and businesses.
