TOURing Funding Tips: Demonstrating the Relevance of Your Project to Funders

We are thrilled to introduce the newest video in the TOURing project’s Funding Toolkit: “Demonstrating the Relevance of Your Project to Funders.” This video is essential for anyone looking to secure funding for their tourism projects by effectively communicating their initiative’s significance.

Relevance of your project

Understanding and articulating the relevance of your project is key to convincing funders why they should choose your project over others. The video guides you through the process of clearly defining the project’s specific objectives, ensuring they are measurable, and aligning them with the broader goals of the funding call. By focusing on the capacity of your objectives to create positive impacts and contribute to wider objectives, you can make a compelling case for your project.

Problem identification and analysis

The video emphasizes the importance of thorough problem identification and analysis. Techniques such as the problem tree help organize and prioritize issues, establishing cause-effect relationships that highlight the root causes of the main problem. This systematic approach enables you to set specific objectives aimed at addressing these root causes, ensuring every aspect of your project contributes meaningfully to its goals.

Tips on presenting your project

Additionally, the video provides tips on presenting your project coherently and backing up your proposals with data. Clear, specific writing and detailed explanations of your methods and processes are crucial to demonstrating the thoroughness and real-world relevance of your project. Funders are more likely to support initiatives that show a clear understanding of the problems they address and a well-thought-out plan for achieving significant, long-term impacts.

By following the guidance in this video, you can enhance the coherence and persuasiveness of your funding proposals, increasing your chances of securing the necessary support to bring your tourism project to life.
