Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

It took us a couple tries to get funded, but we kept at it stubbornly (when we might normally give up) because we were truly a perfect fit for their very specific and clear guidelines. The app questions reflect their specific interests so expect to put in some work on it. Great to work with once on the inside.

Reviewer 827 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2015

The foundation has a robust website with a lot of helpful information on their funding priorities and process for applying. I'd recommend starting by reviewing everything they have posted there to determine your fit. They also post a list of organizations who have received funding in their different priority areas in the past. I recommend reviewing that list to see if your organization is engaged in similar work as other past grantees.
