WEHF ensures that the burden of the grantmaking process is held primarily by their program staff. They let us submit a proposal that we wrote for a different funder and the reporting process was streamlined. The trust the have in their grantees is such a powerful gift.

I have had very positive experiences - I would say to come prepared with data, well organized anecdotal supports, and to be candid and transparent in your challenges and plans. All my conversations have been thoughtful, reflective and part of an iterative process that has yielded more than funding for my organization - our program officer is a trusted partner and has informed my thinking and stretched me as a strategic leader.

Pros

Engaging with the team directly is a wonderful experience.
Process advise is to write the grant out in Word first, and then copy and paste into the website. Check format prior to submit.
