They have a very specific language they like to use, so make sure to fully understand their guidelines, theory of change, etc. There's lots of information on their website--study it carefully to make sure you're a good match. The staff members are very helpful--call before you apply.

McKnight is an amazing funder - we all rely on them in our industry. They have decided to reduce their funding levels for organizations like ours across the board, so we expect less than we used to receive, but the foundation is still absolutely critical to our success.

Pros

Worth the time to pitch, Repeat funding, Builds relationships
