I'd recommend that you actively engage with other grantees of the foundation who can share with the funder their experiences with you and your organization. The foundation is more likely to fund you if you have a solid reputation among your nonprofit peers.

I highly recommend you try to meet with one of their program officers ahead of time. The one I have been building a relationship with over the past couple of years does a great job of providing advice and recommendations for how to submit a compelling proposal based on our project. They are also always willing to answer questions. They have a keen understanding of what the reviewers are looking for. So their insight is always very helpful.

Pros

Insightful, Friendly, Builds relationships, Responsive

It's best to cultivate positive relation ship with the funder. They are highly professional and among the few funders that really understand the need for general operating funding. It's not easy to get funded, but when that happens, this foundation support a long term relationship.

Pros

Gives more than money, Friendly, Builds relationships, Openminded, Responsive
