Bid Writing : Advanced


Are you applying to the right trusts ? Are you applying to enough trusts ? Are you applying in the right ways ? Are your projects the most fundable projects ? Are you carrying out trust fundraising in a professional way ? Are you highly productive or just very busy ?

Are you looking for trusts in all the right places ? How do you compare with your competitors for funding ? Is the rest of your fundraising hampering your bids to trusts ? Do you understand what trusts are ideally looking for ?

The workshop consists of talk, questions and answers. There are no power points or audio visuals used.


Staff members, volunteers, board members or trustees of charities, schools, associations or not for profit organisations who are about to submit grant funding applications to grant making trusts and foundations.

It is assumed that you already know the basic bid writing skills of good preparation, eligibility checking, clear writing and adequate proof reading. If you do not you should attend The Basics workshop first. Around half of all attendees attend both The Basics and Advanced workshops on the same day but there is no discount for attending both.


£95 including booking fees. Refreshments provided. Each attendee will receive a full set of notes and copies of eight real successful funding bids by e-mail after the workshop.


All places must be booked using a debit or credit card through the online booking system. We do not issue invoices or accept bank or cheque payments. If you do not have a debit card from your organisation please use a personal one and claim reimbursement using the booking confirmation e-mail as proof of purchase.


Workshop bookings are non cancellable, non refundable and non transferable between dates. If you are unable to attend on the date booked you may send someone else in your place.


Fully booked means fully booked. There are no waiting lists for people hoping for a cancellation. There are no discounts. If you have a question please e-mail workshops@nfpmail1804.co.uk and you will usually receive a response within 24 hours.
