Very helpful staff who broker honest and forthright conversations about what might work and what might stand in the way of a successful match. Very nimble and responsive in decision-making.

We had a connection there but the responsiveness was great. Initially had a call to introduce organization and then were very responsive when reached out half a year later.
They want to have a catalytic impact by helping nonprofits navigate unexpected roadblocks/opportunities and their process is very focused on this.
It would be great to work with this funder on a more regular basis, e.g., hard-to-fund investments that could have a catalytic impact down the road. However, understandable that's not their focus.
Communicate honestly and quickly, and rigorous in evaluation process.
