It's a good idea to find out what their process is with the grant application, it could be a two step process and you do not want to miss the deadlines. The organization is easy to work with when you know the process.

Make sure you look into the documentation that you need if you aren't a nonprofit and you have a fiscal receiver, because that paperwork could take time to gather.

The grant process has 3 parts to it: a letter of intent, the grant itself, and an in-person interview, so be prepared for this to take some time. Make sure you know what's in your budget; they sometimes ask very detailed information during the in-person interview. Everyone we've met with RCF is really nice, so it should be a pleasant experience.

Remember that the letter of intent is due at the end of the year before you may be invited to apply. It is a straightforward and relatively simple application, just be sure to review all details thoroughly.

Pros
