Grant Applicant - applied before 2014
I have worked as a grant professional for over 15 years. Almost every health/human services nonprofit I have worked at has applied for this award and not received it. One agency applied 12 years in a row. Eventually decisions have been made that it is just not worth the time and effort.
Difficult to work with, Bureaucratic, Risk averse
Current or former grantee
Not accessible. This is more of a giving circle of wealthy Atlanta-based donors who do not want to be contacted or known.
I have no idea as their goals are unclear.
Make yourselves known and available for discussion prior to grant submission and be clear and honest with applicants about their chances.
I recommend very carefully and completely as possible determining your chances of winning the one administered award before putting effort into this one.
We were not funded.
Gives one substantial award of $100,000 annually to one organization.
Grant Applicant - applied in 2018
This feels like another variation of "The Nonprofit Hunger Games". Its a competition with no ability to speak to anyone.
Grant currently pending
No chance to talk to anyone about anything.
I don't understand their goals so it is hard to say if they are accomplishing them. The whole $100K, one project that is TRANSFORMATIVE but you cannot pay overhead or any salary or any, etc... is so tired. You want transformative, let us do our work and pay for the work, not another playground we don't need or a van.
Reconsider your budget requirements. You want transformation then pay for everything that has to be done. Not some vanity project. Its Junior League (maybe bush league) philanthropy at best
