Reviewer 3277 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

It felt like we had to have an insider to successfully receive funding. Without a strong advocate inside the foundation, it felt like our application received harsh analysis and inappropriately prescriptive suggestions for how to improve our work. We have decided not to pursue future funding because of this experience.

Reviewer 115 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2016

Don't bother asking for funds from them. They asked me a lot of questions unrelated to the grant application and were supportive of my proposal. But then I was rejected without any indication of why or what I should do differently. I did not have a pleasant experience and would not go back again.
