The funding priorities are now extremely narrow, so I would suggest reaching out to staff before submitting any requests.

The Foundation used to be focused very clearly on the funding initiatives they defined, and there was no wiggle room outside of them. Now that they're on a "strategy refresh hiatus" for who knows how long, we're waiting with bated breath to see where their new focus will land.
