Enjoy ongoing support and resources!

Great news! You will be able to tap into Grant Master Prue's experience and resources so you're not left wondering what to do next, where to go for data, or how to answer a question.


Here is a little about Prue, then scroll down for information about the incredible Grant Writing Academy Membership. You receive all of this in the 'Get Ready For Grants' package. 

I've written successful applications for grants totalling 60.2 million in the last six years. These have ranged from $10,000 projects to multi-million dollar infrastructure installations which transform communities.

I look forward to welcoming you as a new Member and helping you to realise your grant dreams.

Hi there, I'm Prue.

I've worked all my life in remote, rural and regional Australia. I've learned lots along the way with corporate and medium businesses, and more than a decade with local and state Government.  

Being entrepreneurial has driven me to do things differently, so over the years I started businesses to fill gaps and to experience being the 'pilot'. With tertiary study to mix things up, I've stockpiled industry experience: health; mining; government; print industry; tourism; the media; agriculture; and transport. (I'm sounding like a bower bird collecting treasure.)

Giving back must be in my DNA, so whether I was surrounded by water on Groote Eylandt or surrounded by dust in Kalgoorlie, I was a regular volunteer. I love to create smiles and to make things more enjoyable for the community I call home. 

Working with businesses and organisations makes my engine hum. Using my creativity and collaborative spirit I helped clients achieve their goals. With insider knowledge about Government grants I knew it was time to get serious and start my next business venture. 

I commenced Indigo Gold Pty Ltd and for eight years wrote grant applications for clients, and ran grant workshops for corporates. I worked relentlessly on improving my grant writing process and was very successful, so demand for my services started to exceed my capacity. 

There was demand to share my knowledge about how to write a successful grant application, so the Grant Writing Academy took flight with my founding Membership in 2020. It's a constant delight to nurture my 'community' on their grant writing journey. 

AWARDS AND FEATURED IN:

WE WORK WITH:


And the results speak for themselves...

"Success... 5 grants in 12 months...the Membership made all the difference."

"Since joining I have been successful with five grants ($137,480) in 12 months - it’s made all the difference! I now approach each grant uniquely.  As well as watching live, I can go into the Hub and pull the resources I need and reflect on how they relate to my grant.  Prue’s 'intel', plus hearing from others,  demonstrates there is more than the technical side of things." 
- Bronwyn Davies

"No grant experience to a $350K grant success in 6 weeks!"

"From no grant experience to a $370,000 grant success in 6 weeks! The Membership was fundamental - I wouldn't have secured the grant without it. It completely changed how I was approaching my grant application. Every single question was improved with Prue’s experience and guidance."
- Moira Buchanan, Magnetic Island Distilling

From "feeling stuck" to "being up-to-date and motivated."

"Before joining I was plodding along by myself which lead to writers block and feeling stuck. I now enjoy being up-to-date with fresh ideas and connecting with others keeps me motivated and drives momentum. The Hub is a go-to place for resources and reference materials to help me develop and support my answers."
- Sue Schluter (multi-grant success), Frenchville Sports Club

"Since joining I’ve helped clients receive over $3.5M in grant funding."


"Since joining the Membership I’ve helped clients receive over $3.5M in grant funding. The inclusive fee is good value: Grant Updates; Tutorials to keep my grant skills competitive; allows me connect with other grant writers. Everyone feels comfortable to ask grant questions and Prue gives clear explanations and examples backed by years of experience."
- Anna Dunn, Plentify Grants

"Everything is easy and a time saver...it's a one-stop-shop."

I really love the monthly tutorials - the continuous education is a great way to pick up on new things and Prue’s teaching style makes it easy for me to learn. Everything I need is all in one place and if I'm stuck, I can ask Prue directly. I have a one-stop-shop for all current and upcoming grants, and the links work!
- Maree Sturdy, newbie volunteer grant writer

Received more than 40-times their Membership investment in 4 months

“Thank you Prue, we got our GCBF grant for $18,000 to purchase 2 portable dressage arenas and a trailer to transport/store them. We spent a lot of time reading resources from your files when preparing our grant application." 
- Christine Tasker

"Improves the quality of my grants ... a win-win for me and the funder."


"The GWA Membership lets me focus and invest in improving the quality of my grant submissions. It helps me understand what grants are all about so I can develop applications which are a win-win for me and the funder. I get practical ways to improve my grant writing process."
- Jim Callan, Upcycle CQ

"Engaging forum... resources exceeded my expectations"


"Thank you for providing such a valuable and engaging forum. As a "newbie" I have gained extensive knowledge since joining the Membership. The information and resources has exceeded my expectations...it is obvious you are passionate about empowering members to write grants with confidence.
- Fazila Essack

"Keeps me connected with the ever-changing grant process"

"The Membership keeps me connected with the ever-changing grant process. The information has become second nature when I’m preparing for a grant application …I constantly draw on the information and it’s allowed me to help community groups get organised for grants.
- Carol James

And there are many more!

Why did they become Members?


Because they realised that having a planned and supported grant process, regular training and the latest 'intel' about the grant industry, was going to transform their grant applications.

So instead of overwhelm, and confusion, they can soak up my passionate instruction and support in a like-minded community of grant writers EVERY single month as long as they continue to get value.


The point is, with my system you can transform the way you organise, prepare, write and submit your grants.


And now, I'd like to share my knowledge with you via 
the Grant Writing Academy Membership.

You do have options, but only one makes sense


There are other ways you can improve your grant writing. You can do a variety of courses - once-off instruction that doesn't come with Live support - which will probably not be at the level you need.  Or, you can continue with the school of hard-knocks and try to figure everything out on your own (and this can cost you lots of time and energy).
 

You can do these things, but I am pretty sure that none of them come with a money-back promise.
 

So let's recap...here's what you get with the Grant Writing Academy support for 12 months and the 2-for-1 bonus.

Grant alerts, reminders, support, and your questions answered

You get all new grant opportunities posted every couple of days into the exclusive GWA Membership Facebook Group. You will be kept up to date with email reminders and Facebook posts on all the things happening in the GWA Membership.

The testimonials from GWA Members give you a taste of the impact the Membership creates.
What kind of support can I expect from the grant community?
You are never alone! The GWA Membership community offers encouragement, information and motivation from Grant Master Prue and like-minded grant writers who understand the challenges you face. You'll be able to ask questions, share experiences, and learn from others in the community. The best way to get support is to join a live session to interact with Prue and get to know other Members.

How can I stay motivated throughout the grant writing process?
The GWA Membership provides a supportive community of like-minded grant writers who can offer encouragement and motivation. This is best experienced by joining live sessions as the interaction is most valuable when others can get to know you, and you can explain your questions in person.

The Grant Writing Academy Membership joining period closes 13 December, 10pm AEST

There is a specific reason the joining period for the Grant Writing Academy Membership is only available for a short period of time. 

It's important to spend time serving our audience vs. promoting to our audience, so the 
enrolment is only open for a specific time. We then shift gears to focus our energy on teaching, supporting, and helping you create high quality grant applications.

That's why it's important you note that the registration period ends at 10:00 pm AEST on Saturday, 31 December. You must register before this time. 

Another reason not to miss out is that the GWA Membership price will increase next year. If you join now, your price will be locked in for as long as you stay a continual member, while new Members will pay the higher 2023 price.
 

 Here's what to do if you want to organise an annual membership.
That's $490 (incl GST) for 12 months of membership. 

  • Email Prue your name and address to be used for the invoice -  prue@indigogold.com.au
  • Prue will send you an invoice
  • ​Once the invoice is paid you will be set up with access to the Grant Writing Academy Hub - this is the place where all the tutorials, grant updates, resources and templates are kept for you to access 24/7
