It's great to call prior and get a sense of what they are looking for. They're very receptive. In your application, be as clear as possible about where the money they are giving is going to and why it's impactful to the whole project (if you total project costs are above what you're asking for).

Pros

Friendly, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Responsive

I had no problems with writing and sending this application for a grant but it was not easy to be turned down for a grant since we appeared to be very qualified for support from this grant foundation. I realize that far more people request grants than the company's are able to give each year but it hurts anyway.

Cons

Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues

Reviewer 3469 - Professional in the field

We have tried for months to get answers from Colocation on where the grant application is located. We have called(spoke to the same individual each time), sent emails to the CSR@ColocationAmerica.com numerous times, and filled out the contact form. We never received a single response. It is very frustrating when you have told a campus principal that we have found a grant that would be ideal for her initiative, but you can't get the people to communicate with you. If the grant is going to be funded, as it says in the My Sorry for 2018, then we would think the application would be easy to access.

Cons

Difficult to work with

I credit this funder for having a straightforward grant application process, as simple as filling in the form and emailing it with the requested budget. I had just started as a development officer, and this was my first grant application. Thanks for making it stress-free. Although it would have been better to receive funding than to be turned down!

Pros

Friendly, Responsive

Thank you for your feedback!

We are going to do our best to keep the process straight-forward but with a little bit of technology help along the way. In addition, we have updated our grant "Guidelines" so that it is a bit clearer on what we are looking for within each application.

As for comments from organizations that have been funded, we are happy to connect you with them! Please email us!

Thank you again!

Thank you for your kind words!

We are working on ways to "tier" the grant or provide different options to fit organizations' needs (without wasting their precious resources). Please bear with us we explore this moving foward.

Thank you again for applying for such a great program!

To be honest, we did not receive any feedback on our rather modest request for $7500 in funding that was turned down. So I did not have any contact with the funder. It was just an online application form.

Pros

Openminded
