They were very easy to reach, talk with and we had a friendly report. I was encouraged by the ease of reporting and even when the budget sheet they used seemed onerous they worked with us to make it easy.

If you are intending to make a larger ask, be sure to talk with a program officer first. My beginning conversations were insightful for the funder's priorities and also helped me to know where to head with the application.

Thank you for providing us feedback. It is our desire to be accessible and helpful, so we are happy to hear your discussion with one of our program officers was insightful. The idea of hosting more regional meetings is something we have discussed and we will continue to do so, as we want to continue to learn about how organizations are working together and to facilitate connections.
