Cardinal Red Management support not-for-profits, social enterprises and community-based organisations of all sizes; start up and existing businesses; and local governments to cross the chasm between project opportunity and outcomes. This includes grant / tender writing, project development and management, grant workshops and business writing services.

Putting Pen to Paper – Grant / Tender Writing

Writing grant applications and tenders is time consuming. The timeframes are always tight, the guidelines are tedious, pulling together the supporting documentation laborious; and whatever online submission system is used drives you to the brink of crazy. So let us do it for you.

We can work with you through all stages of the funding process including preparation of the application and supporting documentation, submission, and the ongoing management of successful applications.

From Project Wallflower to Life of the Party – Project Development

How many times have the house lights gone up on a funding round, and you’re still wondering if you want to attend the party? Imagine if your project could be ready to party before you received the save the date? We will work with you to establish your organisation as grants ready and build a solid foundation for successful delivery of your projects. This will ensure you are prepared to apply for funding before a funding program opens; and includes the development of project planning documentation and strategic identification of suitable funding avenues.

Plans vs Planning – Project Management

President Dwight Eisenhower once said, “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” Constant change such as conflicting timelines, loss of key personnel and skill, etc. can see any project go haywire if you don’t see planning as an active ongoing process. With over 15 years’ experience in managing educational and capacity building initiatives, we pride ourselves on delivering projects on time, on budget and to plan. Regardless of where you are at in your project life cycle, we can lighten your load.

Show me the Money – Project Planning and Grant Workshops

Our interactive project planning and grant writing workshops are custom designed, yet all are focused on two things – building confidence and take-home resources. We’ll guide you through the steps to ensure your organisation is grants ready, show you where the money is, and provide you with the processes, tools and skills to develop effective project planning documentation that is appealing to funding bodies.

Word Nerds – Business Writing Services

We really love words, especially writing them. Website copy, media releases, product descriptions and technical writing pieces – we’ve got you covered. For us, perfection in writing is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. If you struggle to find that balance or have been looking at a blank page for the past week, we’re your crew.

Enough about us, we want to hear about YOU
