Advice from a Friend

Deluxe Corporation Foundation

Aug 27, 2019

Reviewer 827 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

For decades the foundation was led by an amazing individual who invested time and energy into developing relationships with nonprofits in the foundation's service area. The grantmaking process was thoughtful, efficient, and struck the right balance between the foundation's information needs and the nonprofit's time/resources for completing a grant request.

That individual is unfortunately no longer at the foundation, and the transition has left nonprofits with the consequences - either unintentionally or without care/regard. On a call in early July when it was announced that the individual was leaving the foundation, current grantees of the foundation were instructed to complete a grant application for the upcoming September 1 deadline. Until at least July 29 that information was also posted at the foundation's website. Our organization did as instructed and then a few days ago received a letter from the foundation saying that they had received our request but are suspending grantmaking (rendering our request effectively moot and time/energy wasted). A crucial missing piece (some sort of follow-up communication to current grantees - even a 50-word email hastily written in 10 minutes) would have saved our organization alone hours of time.

My advice to a colleague - don't apply for the September 1 deadline.
