NFI is among the funders more focused on metrics and data tracking, so we advise you to keep detailed records of your work. Because we maintained this tracking during the project, reporting was a breeze and this first grant from NFI has been a great experience. We hope to foster a long relationship.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Responsive

Thank you for providing us with this feedback. We recognize the importance of increasing our understanding of what is happening across the state, not just in metro areas. We will continue to invest time and resources in visiting rural areas, in-person when possible or virtually. Thank you for sharing with us how important this is to you.

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.
