They have clear funding interests, but great staff willing to talk out project ideas with you. They prefer capital projects but are starting to consider technology needs in response to the pandemic.

We have found everyone here to be highly professional and ethical to work with, and have received multiple grants over the years, but found them to be quite exacting about proposal requirements. Follow guidelines exactly, and if funded (or not), keep them on your newsletter mailing list throughout the year. A meeting between key executives was required prior to final proposal submission.

They are clear about what they will fund, and are very willing to have a conversation about your proposal. Staff are exceptionally helpful all through the process. Communicate with them.

A great organization that provides capital support. They prefer for you to have the majority of your funding for a project already committed, but they will walk you through the entire process. Make sure to reach out early with a project description to make sure it is something that they would be interested in funding.

The staff is glad to help define project parameters for best presentation to the board. It helps to know someone on that board. Warm and professional.
