Meeting with a representative and to ask about the priorities and an amount that would be considered is important before you write the LOI and proposal.

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.

Read through the guidelines and plan ahead. Put the same care and energy into the follow-up report as the grant application if future applications are a possibility.

The Racine Community Foundation is very aware of this area's many needs. They require a letter of intent/preliminary application before you are invited to submit a full proposal. While this may be considered "extra work" it allows the requesting organization to "introduce" the issue they are requesting in a shorter format, rather than completing a full application. Being invited to apply is not guarantee that your proposal will be funded. They will also, at times, ask you to request less via the proposal than you did via the pre-application process.

Align your grant request with well -planned future needs. Since, in some cases, the time between the L of I and the actual application can be long, you must establish what your future needs will be. If your organization has received a grant in the past we believe it is helpful to include All outcomes that have positively impacted our community.
