Advice from a Friend

Grant Applicant - applied in 2021

Island Foundation is such an engaged and friendly foundation. Staff really get to know the organizations they represent and are interested in your work, your outcomes, and want to hear what they can be doing better to help YOU and your organization.

The application process is very straightforward online. Upload a cover letter and narrative and financial information, board list, etc. The longest part for us is simply pulling the narrative proposal together.

Reporting is very easy as well. And I love that in their online form you can either enter text there or attach uploads. We're a large program and it's easier for us to report in a Word Doc. than a character count box on the work they are funding across multiple programs and disciplines.

Reviewer 5223 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

Island Foundation is very transparent, communicative, and simple to apply. They have an easy-to-use online system, they communicate deadlines for reports a month before they are due, they answer emails, and when invited to submit a proposal, they direct you on the amount to request. They are very much a part of the community they are in and know their community very well.
