Reviewer 3794 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

We only interacted with the firm representing this foundation. We found this company to be unusually thorough with initial inquiries, requesting extensive information prior to conducting a field visit or considering a LOI or proposal. Responses to these questions required several hours.

They were very responsive, but also communicated an unusual amount of self-praise for their own level of expertise. It really felt like they wanted to insert their expertise rather than support our intervention. This tone of superiority/entitlement created and reinforced a negative relationship with our organization. We found this dynamic of power entirely unhelpful and counterproductive to our mission.

Cons

Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Difficult to work with, Culturally incompetent
