Open Road was great throughout the process. They had some very tough follow-up questions that really helped us improve our overall grant-writing process. Be prepared and detailed in your proposal and be ready to answer their tough, relevant, and constructive questions. Even if you aren't funded, going through their process can reap rewards from helping your organization to improve in grant writing.

They really understood the constraints that organizations face. They asked smart questions without making us feel on the defensive or as if we needed to justify ourselves. They have some nuanced and less straightforward grant parameters, but we very open to talking them through with us and describing how they make funding decisions. They shared their timeline for decision making and actually turned a decision around quicker than they had promised. That never happens!
