NO TRUTH BENDING REQUIRED
by Jez Bond
A lot of work spent on grant applications for the Education Floor today. We are about to submit our second and, hopefully, as the week continues more will flow…
It’s taken so long getting to the first one but that is apparently just the way it as; as the initial stages involve the most work – in our case re-drafting the business plan, creating a Case for Support and preparing answers for the array of questions that funders can ask.
Having been through this process I am now feeling even more confident. I suppose because so many people end up needing to ‘bend the truth’ in order to tick boxes for funders whereas I am genuinely excited by what we are doing and can demonstrate a clear need for it.
