This funder is an "invite only" funder however the Program Officer seeks effective programming and works to partner agencies with identified community need. Once engaged, the Program Officer is helpful in thinking through strategy and very accessible for questions during the grantmaking process.

Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

Know that its point person is remarkably ill-suited for the job. This staff person is highly insecure, incapable of staying with a train of thought for more than 5 seconds, and needs to be the person who knows it all. Yet, given the power this person exercises, it is a perfect case of the emperor having no clothes - and this person is regularly fawned over and all pretend - at least in this person's presence - that this person makes sense, when in fact this person - while no doubt nice - is incompetent.
