This is my first time applying for Nellie Mae Foundation grant funds but I would recommend drafting details in advance because there is a strict limit on the number of characters/words for each section of the application.

I was very impressed with the rapid response funding opportunities and the funder's commitment to getting support to organizations expeditiously and was even more impressed with the funder's choice to involve young people in the design of the RFP, which reflects a strong understanding of what potential grantees really need right now.
