Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

It takes quite a lot of work and time to get even a modest amount of funding and then the reporting requirements are absurd. We applied in 2014, heard nothing and so figured we were out of luck. We were encouraged to reapply in 2016, so we did and then waited for a year for a decision. Then we were asked to apply again in 2017 using their new application process, so we did. There were 3 site visits. There were multiple requests for additional information not requested in the application (demographic data which was basically impossible to gather for them). Then, once we got the grant (yay!) it no longer covered the equipment costs (since 4 years had passed). And in addition to the final report, they want monthly reporting:
• Regular monthly submission of High-Res photographs of your organization’s participants—a child’s smile has the greatest impact, that can be published in our materials.
• Any measurable statistics of your organization’s impact on young athletes (ex. “100% of our athletes have graduated from high school,” or “53% of children in the program receive free equipment/sponsorship fees/etc.”)
• Participant success stories—everyone loves a champion. Any athletes of distinction, kids with heart-warming stories, tales of motivation, we want to know about them!

Cons

Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Culturally incompetent, Bureaucratic
