Like others have said, there is no relationship building. We were consistently funded for 6 years, and then our proposals were declined 3 years in a row. We waited a bit and are trying again.

Our agency's mission fit into their funding priorities and guidelines. We were awarded a grant and invited to respond to a special RFP six months later. So it was a positive experience but I don't think we spoke to anyone at the foundation, communication was all through email.

It's a crap-shoot. They will not answer emails, there is no phone number to call, and there is not even a name of a person associated with this foundation. And, if you're not invited to apply after doing an LOI, you will never hear back.

Online eligibility questionnaire, then LOI, then full app if invited.

TJX is one of those opaque foundations where all communication happens through the online LOI/application portal or through an "info@" e-mail. I was surprised (and psyched!) when they funded our agency two years in a row, but even when they were funding us they didn't seem to want much communication.
The LOI process is easy and painless so worth taking the chance, but our experience is that they aren't really interested in deeper relationship building.

The TJX Foundation requires an LOI before doing a full application, which is great. However, they claim to not be able to let you know if your LOI is NOT chosen. But they don't post a date by which you should hear if your LOI is chosen. They ALSO make it clear that they don't want you to contact them about the status of your LOI. So...if you have a pending LOI, you just...keep....waiting.

It is unfortunate that their online grant system is fraught with bugs and glitches. Their tech support insists the problem is at our end rather than trying to help us fix the problem and access our application. Furthermore, a phone call to the Foundation is futile. You will hear a recording that says, "Due to a high volume of callers, please email your questions to . . ." We are not getting a satisfactory response from their tech support on email. Very frustrating!
