Be prepared to be frustrated by their online portal's functionality. Also consider the amount of writing and reporting versus the amount of the ask before applying.

Cons

Bureaucratic, Risk averse

I've applied to several of DSACF funds in the past two years, while representing two different non-profits, and have always received at least 75% of the funding I've asked for. I would advise reaching out to their Director of Community Philanthropy and nurturing relationships with their other staff, as well.

Pros

Friendly, Responsive

If you have any remaining grant funds on your project budget - even if you show other sources of revenue - they will request the surplus of funds to be returned to them. Make sure you depict your program budget as breaking even!

Cons

Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues
