To assist your organisation with the application process, we have provided Word templates of EOI and full application online forms on each Program Area page under Prepare to Apply.

Please note these templates are NOT the live application forms. All EOIs and full applications MUST be completed online via our grant management portal. A link will be sent to you to access the appropriate forms if your proposal meets the Foundation's criteria after you've spoken to the relevant Program Manager.

Below are some general Tips & Hints to assist you in providing information on those forms.

Grant writing tips

  • Please write in clear simple English - avoid jargon.
  • Acronyms - assume we don't know what they mean.
  • Ensure that your figures add up - check and check again.
  • Write in specific terms rather than generalisations - especially regarding track record and outcomes.
  • Please call one of our program managers if you are unsure about anything – don’t guess!
  • Don't try to fit a square peg into a round hole. We try to make our objectives and guidelines as clear as possible, so please read the funding objectives carefully to ensure your project is in with a chance!
  • It is worth reading our case studies and looking at our Grants Database to get a better understanding of what, how and who we fund.
  • Ask someone who doesn’t know what your project is to read the application before you submit it to ensure it is clear and easily understood.
