Grant Applicant - applied in 2021

This is a funder with an excellent "nose" for a nonprofit that isn't functioning effectively. I have a lot of respect for Wieboldt because they did NOT fund us at a time when our org was obviously a hot mess that didn't know what we were even trying to do. The gentleman we spoke with was very polite, professional, asked good questions, gave us time and space to explain, etc. but he could clearly recognize a nonprofit in chaos and wisely decided not to throw money at it. If you want to approach them, first get a very clear understanding (shared between everyone who will be talking on the call) of what your organization is trying to do and how you're trying to do it, what your plan is for the short/medium term, and how this aligns with the foundation's priorities. Come with receipts (not "we reach thousands across Chicagoland" - you will need specifics!). Answer the questions (do NOT go off on a tangent responding to a question you wish they asked or discussing a related topic because you don't have a good answer - answer the question that was asked).
