Our gardens are getting busier with every year. We have more volunteers helping at the gardens who want to learn or just muck around at the gardens planting but we are very short on volunteers who are equally happy to spend time on the laptop looking for funding options and filling out forms. We are looking for someone who is keen to help us to grow to our full potential by finding funds for our budget. We have been able to secure funds for the last two years and our financials are in order. We are registered as a charity and our coordinator would love a helping hand with this side of the organisation.
You need to be computer savvy as most application are done online now. You also need to be confident in filling out application questions and this understand our mission and future vision for our garden. You would have the support of our coordinator for this. You would need to take the time to read funding criteria per funding organisation and fit our mission with them.
Each application takes up to 2-3 hours to complete more or less. This can be done over several days. This depends on each individual funding agency. Some are very lengthy and other are simple. Some you can cut and paste from previous applications others you would need to write it up according to their criteria and priorities.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
