Working and living in regional WA, our Founder, Tara Whitney, saw a lot of sporting clubs, community organisations and small not for profits struggling with grant applications. But she knew they did not have the funds to hire professional help.

Grant workshops are great but unless you go home and write your application straight away, you forget a lot - and what are the chances the grant you need is open at the exact time that you get access to a grant workshop? It was clear to Tara that smaller organisations without a lot of money needed help. They needed a guiding hand to help them write their application AT THE EXACT TIME OF WRITING! But it needed to be low cost.

This was the inspiration for GIY - an online grant writing program that walks you through writing your application, step by step, as you go. By the end of the course, you have written your application - without the headaches, uncertainty and stress AND at a much higher quality and chance of success.

Love The Course

Erin Roberts

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.



Just wanted to say congratulations – it is a fantastic online course, content very easy to follow and would help any grant writer. Well structured, worksheets following video excellent with information that would support any grant writer to produce quality applications meeting the funders objectives and criteria. Will be highly recommending.

Highly Recommend
