About Tara Whitney

Principal Consultant

Hi, I'm Tara a funding and Grant Writing expert and the founder of Whitney Consulting. My team and I specialise in helping large not-for-profits, state and local government, agencies and other organisations in Perth and Western Australia secure funding for their regional projects and initiatives.

My team and I have previous extensive experience as grant assessors, our clients have the added benefit of having experts who are familiar with the grant assessment process helping them navigate the grant process. We work with our clients through the entire grant approval process and continue to work with them through funding and management.

We’ve sourced over $40 million in grant funding for our clients.

Grant It Yourself - Grant Writing Course

The Grant it Yourself grant writing course is a comprehensive, online grant writing course that will teach you how to write quality grant applications. It will give you the confidence and skills to prepare successful funding applications. This course contains worksheets, templates and videos and is broken down into easy to follow modules.

When you sign up for this option, you will receive instant access to the following:

  • Immediate access to the course for 3 months.

  • Access to 16 informative, grant writing video modules all taught in a systematic way that you can turn into real time success for your own applications!

  • Each module has worksheets & templates so you can implement what you are learning.

  • Designed and taught by the Founder of Whitney Consulting, Tara Whitney who is the most in demand grant writer for Western Australia and has acquired over $50 million in funding for clients!

  • BONUS :: Reduced price on 1 on 1 grant writing advice video calls with Tara @ $190 per hour (save $60)

I enjoyed the course and found it both informative and easy to follow. I particularly liked the way it was broken down into modules, none of the videos were overly long and they were nicely supported by the downloadable PDFs which are good resources to refer back to.

For me, breaking down exactly what should and shouldn't be included in a grant application was the most useful part. I liked that you dedicated a module to each important component. It definitely made me feel more confident that I could tackle a grant application for a client in the future.
