If you want this funder's one-page application form, I think if you call its phone number or leave a voice mail with your organization's name and address, it will mail you its paper application. Everything is done by phone or on paper with this funder. The only component that is online is its 990 forms.

It's hard to connect with them to even get application information and details. Be prepared to be persistent.

They don't have any information online currently, but they were very responsive when I sent them a letter in the mail. They were also willing to respond via a phone call, but they aren't always available. Snail mail is the best way.
