They are open to meetings but the answers you receive are pretty noncommittal. I think the answer to everyone is "it's worth it to apply" even if it's not.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Gives more than money, Builds relationships, Responsive

Reviewer 7538 - Professional in the field

I never advise organizations to apply to the Foundation. The application process is long and tedious and not worth the effort. That is unless you have a connection to a board member or the President.

Cons

Inadvertently exerts negative influence in the field, Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Difficult to work with, Culturally incompetent, Bureaucratic

This foundation is very open to dialogue. It's a good idea to meet with them before you submit a proposal, and once they bring you on as a grantee, they can be a real resource to you. They truly understand positive youth development, and want to see a real commitment to supporting youth leaders within their Fund for Children grantees.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Friendly, Builds relationships, Likes site visits, Responsive
