Definitely call the Grants Officer before applying and seek advice from her on approach and grant amount. Have your idea/strategy well thought-out before making this call.

I would definitely suggest finding ways to interact with the group and getting to know key members a bit before applying. Request a meeting or phone conversation, or attend an event they are sponsoring. Its just like any other process in life, familiarity an putting yourself in someone else's shoes goes a long way towards success. The long-term approach will give greater confidence in putting in the time and energy to tackle the application, and that generally builds in a different way than just sitting down and saying "You funder, me organization."
