Advice from a Friend

Reviewer 3680 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

The foundation wants to fund new projects, not as interested in sustaining anything. They gave us 1/3 of the request for an ongoing project, 1/2 for a second annual event and 100% for a one time project in the schools. I have been asked to defend the grant before funding once and I found they hadn't gone beyond the narrative to find out more about the subject so I have tried to be more thorough and persuasive in the narrative. Finally, they are not very good at communications and getting the actual check to us. Overall, its a lot of work for not a lot of money and I find it really frustrating to work with them, but what choice does a small, grass-roots org have in a small, rural area not served by the bigger corporate donors 30-60 miles away?

Cons

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