Reviewer 4040 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019
The application is long and tedious and filled with tons of statements about diversity and inclusivity while also asking about the make up of the board including race, gender, and if the board "reflects the people and community the agency serves."
Grant currently pending
I really cannot comment on this but I think it is ironic that the entire application talks about diversity, inclusion, and equity while at the same time asking questions about the board, staff , and client make up and demographics almost as a way to disqualify an organization.
Staff and board of an organization can have a large amount of "lived experience" and not publicly advertise that. Please stop giving weight to "lived experience" and acknowledge most people either volunteering or working in a non profit agency do so because of passion for the mission, and genuine desire to improve the conditions for everyone. People in nonprofit work may or may not disclose about "lived experience" and I don't think a foundation's decision about a grant application should be based on some kind of general idea about who on staff and/or board really "understand" the clients or population served.
