Since The Medina Foundation understands the importance of unrestricted funds, who can write your grant to reflect all of your programs and services and how they are integrated to serve the communities need. It is a very holistic approach and a huge relief that they get the big picture of how non-profits work.

This is truly the first/last/only foundation that understands the predicament of 501 c 3 orgs. They help bolster internal functionings, they fund, "overhead," and everything else dismissed by most other funders. Thank you Medina for "getting it."
