This funder is very particular. Follow their rules. If your LOI is not double-spaced, for example, they will automatically decline it. They insist on numerical benchmarks for all goals and objectives. Overall, it seems that their trustees are very old-school in their thinking. On the plus side, if you are invited to submit a full proposal, the staff person works closely with you so that you have a strong proposal. She'll come back to you and ask for rewrites, rather than just letting the trustees decline it.

Funded for lesser amount
Very accessible if they accept your LOI. Not at all before that.
More general operating grants, not so project-based.
Like to issue their grants as challenge grants.
