The LOI is more like a full proposal. Definitely more work than your usual two pager format

We appreciate you taking the time to review us. We have a two-step application process that starts with an initial application rather than an LOI. We try to be clear about our approach in communication with prospective grant applicants and will make an effort to emphasize this point in the future so others know what to expect and can plan accordingly. Thank you for this helpful feedback.

Medica Foundation is one of the few that offers a simple grant program for up to $5,000 toward capital expenses. They are very responsive and easy to work with.

Medica has a very liberal interpretation of "health", which is nice. I'm only familiar with their Core Mission Support grant application, which is pretty straightforward and uncomplicated.

Pros
