Reviewer 1115 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2020

An incredibly wasteful experience that highlighted an outrageous amount of ego on the part of the Cushman family. We were invited multiple times to apply for their support, and never got adequate feedback as to why we were declined. They started a new program through the Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego, and held an hour-long orientation for applicants, insisting that applicants attend in order to be eligible to apply (taking roughly 2+ hours out of my day). The orientation was deeply condescending ("our reviewers are college educated so spelling matters!" There was an emphasis on how much $$ the CEO of the applicant charity makes and how awful it is if they make decent $. It just felt insulting the entire time. We decided after that round that we wouldn't apply to them anymore. They just seem to like to play with charities and exert their power over them.
