As a corporation funding from its headquarters, it is important to have the local branch manager knowledgeable on your organization and aware of the grant request in order to get support up through the management chain. We are in a small town with a single branch so in a larger city, contact with an area or regional manager is helpful.

Like many corporate funders, getting serious consideration for your request depends heavily on having one of their executives involved with you organization. Once our connection no longer existed, the funding went away.

It very difficult to get you questions answer. There is nobody to tell you who reviews the grants, what are the tendencies or review your grant. It seems you have to have someone in the inside or be a large institution that has a lot of visibility.

The program officer was accessible and helpful, but here it is 8 months later and we still haven't been notified whether or not we have received funding. Last we heard, we are under consideration, but pretty much no one is talking to us.

The grant application was like many others. Online, character limited, poor webform to word processing capabilities. It wasn't the greatest process, nor was it the worst.


Worth the time to pitch
