Grant Applicant - applied in 2016

You should have a very traditional model for this donor. FP likes to be able to point at discrete work/impact that Focusing Philanthropy supports and claim credit. The biggest challenge with FP however is that FP makes a relatively small financial commitment and the organization has to raise the bulk of a "match" that is then donated through FP - as a result you are raising funds for FP to donate to you, and the funds are now restricted.

Cons

Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Difficult to work with
