Catholic Community Foundation is a wonderful organization to work with. Our school was invited to participate in a marketing grant during the 2017-2018 school year. The grant application took quite a while to complete however it asked very insightful questions that pertain to Marketing. My suggestion is to fully outline your plans with the requested money, and provide a strong reason for your why. Also, make sure you answer all of the questions in their entirety.

The application process was straightforward, easy to complete and didn't require a lot of unnecessary steps or documentation.

They are a wonderful foundation! This is usually an invitation only process, but once you are in the system they are so responsive to phone calls, emails, or a meeting if necessary for further clarification. They truly care about the organizations they fund and develop deep relationships.

Make a point to call and meet with the staff. They are warm, curious and engaged. When my application wasn't a direct fit with one funding-priority area, they kept the application in mind for other grants and also helped me connect with another foundation. True partners in service.

The team at CCF is always eager to learn about our funding needs and help explore ways that the needs can align with available funds. From the President, to the program officer we work with, the staff is super accessible for phone or in-person conversations. Additionally, their other team members are excellent at fielding questions specific to their area of expertise. Whether it is questions about a donor's interest in making a planned gift or gift tracking, the CCF team is always professional and helpful.

I have had three contacts with the Grants Manager and each time, her conversation was crisp and terse to the point of being unkind. I was left with the distinct impression that I was wasting her time with my questions. To be fair, a phone call to the Program Officer with this same foundation was a very pleasant experience.

Cons

Difficult to work with
