Funding Submission Experts
Building the evidence you need to activate your priority projects.
Your specialist team when you need a compelling case for funding
Ready to effectively position your organisation and project with funders and influencers? If you’re looking for serious funding, our team can give you the edge with your funding submission – whether that’s a grant application, pitch or business case.
Working with us on your funding submission will do more than just provide you with a pitch to funders, it will give you the assurance that your project is well defined, viable, sustainable and will likely deliver your desired outcomes. We look deeply into your project and will work with your to ensure your project is positioned for success.
Our team offers clients a background in leading comprehensive business case development for numerous multi-million dollar projects for Western Australian State Government agencies, local governments, innovative businesses and non-profits.
From the outset, we’ll work with you to delve into the objectives of your project and check the alignment between your intended strategy and the likelihood of meeting your objectives.
If you’re a Western Australian local government and your project involves a major land transaction, we can also assist you by preparing the Business Plan required as part of the Local Government Act 1995, in order to seek public comment on your proposed project.
Need more than a funding submission?
When preparing a funding submission, you need to have fully developed the concept you’re seeking funding for. That means you’ll often need supporting pieces of work such as business plans, feasibility studies/options analysis, cash flow forecasts, concept plans, building costings, asset maintenance and renewal schedules and, for major government funding, a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis.
In addition to our own team, we’ve developed a network of trusted professionals needed to activate specialised services, including financial consultants, architects, quantity surveyors, economists and more. You can bring your own specialist, or access ours.
Our Winning Edge
Our Director, Anna, spent years in government roles involving the design of grant funds, along with the assessment of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of grant funds (and the management of awarded funds).
With this unique experience, we deliver our clients the unique insights of a grant assessor’s understanding of what funding bodies are looking for, coupled with practical experience of designing and implementing grant-funded projects.
Each of our team members bring their career experience in managing projects, shaping communications and creating compelling documents designed to influence, underpinned by strong evidence.
Client Case Studies
Our business case clients come from a wide range of sectors – not-for-profits, businesses and local governments. They each had viable, demand driven projects and invested in the development of detailed supporting documentation to allow them to communicate their value to stakeholders.
If you’re interested in joining the ranks of our many satisfied clients, make a time to discuss your requirements.
The Drakesbrook Winery team wanted to activate a novel (but viable) business concept and secure government and bank finance. They turned to our team to take their inspiration and create the foundational documentation to support it. In addition to developing a solid business plan encapsulating their winery business to highlight its viability, we prepared a comprehensive business case for their new proposition that communicated its value as an economic driver for the region. This documentation supported the winning Regional Economic Development Scheme grant we prepared for them, kickstarting their fund to move forward with their project.
“We really appreciated the professional support and advice to navigate the government grant process. Anna and her team provided persuasive, well-written and professionally presented documentation (business case, business plan and grant application), as well as helping us shape our business concept. We’d recommended Anna Dixon Consulting to any business looking for a down-to-earth consultancy team to guide them through the grant process.”

Shire of Chittering
The Shire of Chittering is a fast growing peri-urban local government area on the fringes of Perth. When we were engaged to prepare a successful Building Better Regions Fund application for a key piece of infrastructure, it was quickly apparent that the business case they had already prepared had some solid economic modelling but lacked the detail that would get them over the line with this competitive fund.
With our insights, gained from preparing successful business cases from previous rounds of this extremely competitive fund, we provided a range of enhancements to bring the existing document up to the expected standard. As a result of this document, in combination with our professional grant writing, the Shire secured the multi-million dollar investment they sought.
“Anna and her team delivered a responsive, professional service, providing quality reports on complex matters. With a strong understanding of government processes and systems, they bring a practical and results-focused approach and were easy to work with.”
Alan Sheridan, CEO – Shire of Chittering
