A great <endeavour> has already been made

I am writing a fairly formal text and I was looking for a synonym for "effort". I found that "endeavour" could do but I'm not so sure. What do you guys think? The sentence is:
"A great endeavour has already been made in this preliminary project"

PS: Is "make" the verb you use with endeavour? Like, do you make endeavours, do you put them, etc.?

    I don't see "effort" as being particularly informal. Replacing "great" might get better results, "robust effort" or "prodigious effort" might work well.
