I am not familiar with the process of approaching FNV directly, but rather they participate in a funders' collective that reviews subject-matter related proposals along with other foundations and they make strategic decisions as a group. However, I suspect that they would be very responsive and candid with anyone who wanted to reach out to them about their process, capacity, and interests. I would recommend email contact and being clear and detailed in your message.

Fund for Nonviolence is committed to supporting good work and making the grant writing process streamlined. We have a demonstrated history of hard won, yet successful work and have developed a really positive working relationship with them. I think a personal conversations of work being done seems to be highly valued by their staff.

This funder values grassroots work, as well as transparency and honesty. They'd rather know the truth about your challenges than see a shiny dog and pony show. They also give budgets a close read, so make sure you're able to answer detailed questions about what you need, what you have, and how resources are being spent.
