They make themselves very accessible via phone as well as via community forums (i.e. Meet the Funders events). Review their web site, because they're good about posting recent learnings, trends, and their strategy.

They actually listen. That doesn't mean they don't have their own agenda. But they really do believe that nonprofits know what they're talking about, especially when it comes to their own organizations. So think carefully about what you really need because they will actually listn.

it's difficult to get money from this funder - but you should always try. They are a great foundation.

they are great to apply to, they are fair and reasonable but you better have your finances in order.

Call them and ask if you are a good fit. Even though your organizational budget is $700,000, they will only consider you for a "small" grant ($25,000). They won't fund you unless you've been around awhile and unless you have a bunch of other funders. But when they do fund you, they will give you general support for multiple years and will be polite, helpful, and accessible to you during and after your grant.
