The Tier 1 program is a terrific option for requests up to $25K. Note, they are unlikely to fund staffing or operations.

Form a relationship with your grant officer. Try to call occasionally and update them on what you are doing and see if any of the upcoming ideas may be a fit with their funding priorities.

What I like about Rasmuson is they really listen to the communities they invest in and visit. When I applied for 25K from them for my agency I was a new director and I missed the deadline for the mid year report. They were very understanding and it didn't hurt our chances for future grants.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Gives more than money, Culturally sensitive, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues

The people at Rasmuson are really easy to work with. Their website lays out their grant guidelines very clearly, and the staff I've spoken to are very direct (but with kindness) so you don't waste your time applying for a hopeless grant. Call them and ask for guidance! Even if you don't know who to call there, call the general number and they will help you connect with who you need to talk to.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Gives more than money, Risk taker, Culturally sensitive, Insightful, Friendly, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive
