Are the Funding Centre's tools & products any good?

Here's what not-for-profit organisations say about our grants and fundraising tools and information:



"There are many databases on what Foundations and Trusts are out there. The best we've seen is the Funding (Centre) Scoop ... Many students have commented to us it's the wisest money they've ever spent." (School for Social Entrepreneurs, A Guide to Fundraising)

"Thank you so much for my first issue of (your grants newsletter). Everything my fundraising friend told me about it is true. It is solid gold. It will save me hours and hours of beauty sleep-time trawling hopelessly through the internet. Thank you Thank you Thank you!"


**


"Thank you for your help. Since our inception a decade ago we have easily got back the money we pay for our membership, with bells and streamers on! I encourage any other groups I meet to also sign up for all your resources."


**


"I would like to thank you for your online presence and information. I work as the Community Liaison for an organisation that provides support and services for adults with an intellectual disability. I have printed off a lot of your material, get the newsletter, bought some of your resources and attended your fundraising lectures. Your information has enabled me to start a mini revolution of creative thinking and community opportunity for our organisation, with the added bonus that we have been successful in our grant applications."

"What a fantastic initiative Ė how refreshing not to have to reinvent the wheel."

"I have found the membership terrific. The newsletter format is great and itís so easy to find grants of interest. Itís also great that you only send it once a month with very few emails in between. "

Surfing the net for the past 3 years looking for websites to help me in my job of managing a community project has not been easy. Most have been overseas with little help to be found in Australia. I found your site today ... What I have seen so far has encouraged me greatly with the wide range of relevant information and plenty of tips for finding grants and fundraising and plenty of advice and learning articles. Looking forward to being part of this great Our Community. I will be spreading the word."

"Firstly I would like to thank you for your fantastic efforts in centralising grant information and making it available to us out here in the wilds of rural Victoria. We think your service is FANTASTIC! We look forward to its arrival every month and scour it with a fine tooth comb (so to speak). May you continue to grow and develop in your most worthwhile endeavours. Our tiny rural community has benefited enormously through your work."

" Congratulations on a great site & organisation; I have recommended many people to it."


**


"I was just referred to your site by a friend here in Brisbane and I am so impressed! I will be referring to you all over the place! Thanks for the wonderful work you are doing."

"Just wanted to let you know that we have recently received a grant of $15,000 to help renovate our bathroom to have disabled access. This is very exciting, and I want to thank you for your regular newsletter which gives details of such grants. It is so much easier to scroll through the possible grants and see what we might be eligible to apply for."

"I would like to thank OurCommunity.com.au for their efforts in producing the EasyGrants and the Raising Funds newsletters [now the Funding Centre Scoop]). They are a great source of information and a great time saver to us. Without you we would not have found out about this grant and would not have obtained this funding. You deserve great accolades and have our enormous gratitude for your initiative in providing this service to community organisations around the country."

"I spend quite a lot of time researching/writing grant applications and I know too well the drudge of trying to determine eligibility! Your grants newsletter saves people like me an enormous amount of time in this regard."


**


"My sincere thanks for your service, it has made my job not so daunting."

"I would just like to congratulate you on what is an excellent service for the NFP sector, especially the smaller charities fighting hard to keep themselves afloat to maintain essential community services."
