Reviewer 1223 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018
Be aware that this grantmaker requires a lot but provides a little. While they say they offer "Major Grants" of up to $25,000, do not be surprised when you receive $5,000. Their application requirements are onerous (complex LOI, then full proposal with logic model, evaluation plan, outcomes, budgets, publicity plan, etc., etc._ Then if you get the grant, you must provide an interim and final report.
Inadvertently exerts negative influence in the field, Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Difficult to work with

The program officer takes calls and gives advice.
As a corporate foundation, they aim to help the community and also improve their corporate image....all good. But they do not realize the extent of the damage they are doing to the grantseeking community and to their reputation as a result of their onerous grants process.
Consider making it easier for grantseekers to apply. Reduce the application requirements for grants $5,000 and under.
Their guidelines are very clear and on a clear timetable. The program officer is accessible and will offer advice.
