I would definitely recommend a specific conversation with them about what expenses they will and will not fund. We discussed a project proposal, and essentially got back a "we don't fund salaries, period", regardless of whether they are program-related or not. It does make you wonder, though, how they think you are going to pay the teachers for the education programs they want to provide.

Cons

Inadvertently exerts negative influence in the field, Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Culturally incompetent

Meet with them beforehand. The conversation will help you gage if it is a good project and how much to ask for. We asked for a larger amount than we usually do and although we weren't funded at the total amount, we did receive more than previous years. I do believe they are willing to fund new, innovative and out of the box projects. They like to see community collaboration.

Pros

Risk taker, Friendly, Builds relationships, Likes site visits, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive
