My experience relates to the California office of this foundation. My organization received an endowment gift from this foundation several years ago. I have tried again and again to establish a relationship with the program officer associated with our organization but have had no luck doing so.

Current or former grantee
Funded for lesser amount
My organization received an endowment gift some years ago. I contacted our program officer via email to request a short conversation so we could discuss a new project. The program officer simply would not agree to that so I had to conduct a conversation through emails. This took far longer than a 5-minute phone conversation would have and was very off-putting.
I strongly believe that grantmakers should make themselves accessible to grantseekers. That is part of the program officer's job. We're both trying to do good in the world.
They fund a lot of education projects.
