Generally, these things are assessed:

  1. What is the community benefit?
  2. How many people does your organisation support?
  3. What outcomes will the funding produce?
  4. How much capacity do you have to raise funds through other means?
  5. Have you gained funding from other sources?

I recommend you have one A4 page that summarises along the lines of Who, What, Why, Where, How.
