Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

This Foundation is all about attracting as many donors as possible. They stalk all the retired communities for presentations to push setting up a fund with them. 90% of the time, if you check their website, they have no grants available. It seems to be selection by who you know or smoke signals. If you are invited to apply, the amount is quite low. This county is one of the wealthiest and most Republican in California, but the Foundation keeps the money to itself. They do some workshops that are sponsored by businesses to make it look like they are active, but all the consultants let it be known that it is not worth it to pursue. Too little and not often.
