The team seems very approachable and helpful, though I'll say the webinar did not add much value outside of the information already in the RFP. Some of the budget questions were confusing and it was difficult to tell how they wanted demographic information presented (# or %).

Pros

Culturally sensitive, Friendly, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Responsive
