This small family foundation is very clear about its guidelines and processes. Check their website before attempting to reach out to the staff, as you may get the answers you need.

Reviewer 503 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

This was a new funder for us, and I have been thrilled to work with them. Their expectations are clear and concise, they have a streamlined LOI and grant process, and there are no overly cumbersome/unrealistic reporting metrics. Love PAMF!

Reviewer 630 - Did not apply

Contact them directly to ask questions or pitch an idea. My organization ultimately did not apply for a grant because we were not a great fit for some of the Foundation's parameters, but we were grateful that the Foundation's Managing Director responded immediately (same day) and in a supportive way to our email inquiry.

Their staff is very responsive and although their website does not have a great level of detail it's worth reaching out to talk to them about your program or organization.

Grant application is relatively simple and you'll likely already have much of the information prepared in other formats for other grants. Foundation initially reached out to us. (Not other way around.)

After a conversation about ongoing needs, awarded us a multi year program grant and one year general operating grant. Genuinely interested in lessons learned and program improvements. Short application and report that focus on key points.


Reasonable character restrictions, Reasonable reporting terms, Insightful
