Grant Applicant - applied before 2014

I no longer would not recommend approaching this funder. VSUW had a heart for the nonprofit community - this all changed 10 years ago. Each year, less money was awarded to successful (according to the logical model outcomes) programs. VSUW hired a grant manager and began to compete with nonprofits. Funding awards dollars sparse, guidelines were narrow, and funds given were intricately ties to their project grants. Oh, did I say they moved from a humble office building to a huge expensive office space that was typically empty. What a waste of money and a loss for those we all serve in our communities.

Cons

Inadvertently exerts negative influence in the field, Bureaucratic

I suggest a trusted colleague should get involved in as many ways as possible where you are giving to them before you consider asking them to give to you.

Cons

Difficult to work with, Culturally incompetent, Bureaucratic, Risk averse
