Do you need to raise more money from grant applications?

The Grant-Writing Toolkit from BTA Knowledge will give you the vital building blocks of successful grant applications.

Covid has altered the grant landscape and made it essential to have strong, well-developed applications ready to go as soon as funds open. This in-demand course will help you upgrade your fundraising skills and secure your income.

Let us tell you exactly how to plan, create and submit successful applications for just a few hours a week, and transform your fundraising.

A toolkit participant said: “Very informative and full of useful information with clear and concise direction, excellent back up videos to study in your own time and on hand tutor advice throughout. Would recommend to anyone looking for grant funding from new to seasoned administrators.”
