The staff and program directors at Headwaters are all extremely accessible and helpful with all questions you might have. Absolutely go to their website and give them a call. They have very helpful in-person and webinar info sessions for all of their grant opportunities, and they really take the time for Q&A periods to be certain all grant seekers understand the application process. Even if you have attended a session and still have a question, they are very receptive to follow-up questions and they bend over backwards to help.

What a great resource for community-based organizations doing social change work! Do not bother applying if you do not fit into this description. They are laser-focused on helping smaller organizations.

I have not applied for funding from Headwaters but have had the opportunity to talk with their staff and others who have received funding and I would highly recommend them. They do great work and are genuinely concerned with equity.

Call in advance and have a meeting with one of the program officers to discuss your idea and see if it is a good fit.

When applying for a grant through the Headwaters Fdn for Justice, they do a great job of offering up their time to chat with you about your idea beforehand. I attended a conference call where they spoke about the grant priorities first and then offered time for people applying to ask questions and discuss their ideas. This was super helpful and got them to start thinking about your organization and proposal, as well as offer you advice.

Pros

Culturally sensitive, Friendly, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive
