Reviewer 5444 - Professional in the field
In the past, they have been extremely secretive and unresponsive. They simply weren't interested in talking to anyone that they didn't already know or that wasn't introduced by someone close to them. These days, they seem much more open to conversations with strangers.
Professional in the field
I consider them thought partners, and have had success in calling them up to brainstorm about issues that I'm working on. The staff comprises smart people!
Do more to get out there and talk face to face with nonprofit professionals and members of the communities they serve. You are making great progress in this direction, and you need to step it up.
Humility is not their virtue.
Did not apply for funding.
They use social media (e.g., Twitter) to showcase crucial regional issues and to report on their impact. This is especially commendable, considering how secretive they used to be.
