I would not recommend applying to this funder. They make you do way too much for a small grant, and then won't fund you again after the $1000 they give you. They also won't allow you to get paid for your work so they expect people to have the financial means to volunteer all the time. And they seem to constantly be churning through staff.

If you don't need the $1000, the process they put you through for the money is completely not worth it. Spend the time on creating a crowdfunding campaign and getting donors who will stick with you. This funder is also only a one time grant so it is exhausting to create relationships with them only to get $1000 one time.
