Study their past grants on their IRS 990's to get a feel for the kinds of projects they prefer, and at what funding level. A meeting with the Executive Director also is a good idea.

Their Executive Director is one of the best Foundation leaders in the QC - there is no need to feel stressed. His relaxed approach and deep interest in the nonprofit world shines through - he is not like old school funders who expect you to be in a shirt and tie - he recognizes the power dynamic but names it and moves on.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Insightful, Builds relationships, Likes site visits, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded

The foundation is very responsive and committed to the local community. I recommend meeting with the Executive Director at least twice annually to hear about initiatives and update them on your progress. They are incredible accessible and happy to meet and talk through your needs and how they might align with the funding opportunities.

The Executive Director is knowledgeable, approachable, and ethical. He is very willing to be helpful with the granting process and you can feel free to call or meet with him if you have any questions. The grant process itself is clear cut and provides sufficient room for detail. I would suggest that the community need be clearly expressed and supported by community based data. The plan to address the need should have the same level of clarity and support.
