Looking at their website it is pretty clear what each of the funding categories are intended for with examples and other information.
I do enjoy speaking on the phone or in person with the Executive Director who is very encouraging and makes great suggestions about what way to go about requesting the funds. The entire staff is very personable.

If you're not approved the first time - try again. Also be willing to talk with someone and ask what you can do differently next time to earn approval. They are honest and helpful.

It is best to type your responses to the application questions in a word document because the boxes on the form do not expand. Type concise responses to questions. This will make it easier to copy and past your answers onto the application form. If you require additional space, I would suggest attaching a separate Appendix. They are truly committed to serving the community, supporting nonprofits and making a difference. The entire application form is only 3 pages. Go for it!
