Advice from a Friend

I think with Joffe there is a significant (and welcome) focus on collaboration and networks. They - like us - realise that you usually can't bring about positive change in isolation, so working alongside partners and identifying areas for collaboration is critical. So my advice would be to identify how you can complement the existing Joffe network.

Reviewer UK586 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

Focus not on service delivery but on what the change you want to see in the world is. Be clear about the role of your key individuals in achieving this. Give a very clear timescale for the grant (usually one year, conceivable second year extension). Explain how this fits with the wider sector.

A really committed funder, the best I've seen. Flexible, adaptive, understands real challenges of organisations and is willing to go where no other funder has gone yet. You couldn't ask for a better partner.

I believe the Joffe Trust likes to be involved during proposal development, rather than simply being sent a proposal. Dialogue is therefore crucial.

This is a very unique funder, in that they support organisational development, and deeply engage with your organisation and work ahead of and during the funding proposal. They are great at helping you through the application process, and stay engaged once you have entered a funding relationship.
