2357 Development Group Inc. is focused on supporting our community to secure external funds to enable projects and events to enhance our community. 


We offer this support in a variety of ways.


We are focused on supporting and importantly empowering members of community groups to be ready for and to apply for upcoming grant or fund raising opportunities. 


Grants and fundraising opportunities come about at various times. Each of them has their own priorities and requirements. 2357 Development group is here to support you to find the appropriate grant for your needs and to be prepared for when that grant appears.


Rather than jumping as a grant appears we want you to prepare to be what is often termed  ‘shovel ready’ or ‘shelf ready.  Helping your team to be pre-prepared with the project descriptions, details, costings and quotes for projects you want to achieve. All ready for some quick editing to fit into a grant opportunity when it appears.
