Calling all Grantseekers!

The Ian Potter Foundation is hitting the road in May. We will be holding a free Information Forum in Brisbane on Tuesday 9 May and are inviting QLD-based charitable organisations to learn more about the Foundation.

  • How do you attract philanthropic funding for your project or organisation?

  • What do funders look for?

  • How can you maximise your chances of success?

  • If successful, what are your obligations to the grant-maker?

Meet CEO Craig Connelly and the grants management team to hear about why, what and how we fund projects.

This free event is a special opportunity for QLD-based grant-seekers to gain insight into our assessment processes, pick up 'top tips' for writing a winning grant application, and learn about our project evaluation framework.

The first session will provide a general introduction to the Foundation.  Sessions 2 and 3 will cover the Foundation's different program areas providing more details on the Foundation's programs and priorities plus a Q&A session. In the Evaluation & Setting SMART KPIs session, our Research & Evaluation Manager will provide insights and key learnings from our past grants, as well as guidance on setting SMART KPIs.
