The character limits are really tight on the LOI and application--it forces you to (overly) simplify your message.

Reviewer 6235 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

The Foundation runs a clear and simple process that really reduces burden on applicants. They start by being close to the community they seek to fund - they do much leg work up front, so they are clear what they seek to accomplish. The LOI makes the process more accessible, and once invited, we found the full application to be straightforward, relevant and pretty simple to complete. They didn't ask repetitive questions - they focus on the work and the impact in a very clear and simple way.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive

We are glad you had a positive experience with RMSFF and found your site visit to be beneficial. Funding increases and the likelihood of funding increases varies depending on the nature of the request and the foundation’s history with an organization. We encourage you to be in touch with your program officer to discuss this possibility further.
