Grant Applicant - applied in 2023
Walder is invitation only. First, I was invited to apply for a grant in performing arts. I waited weeks for a response to an LOI. Then I advanced to the proposal stage. Weeks and then months passed without word. An unresponsive organization that finally—8 months later, I was given was money than requested.
Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Difficult to work with, Bureaucratic, Risk averse
Current or former grantee
Funded for lesser amount
Hard to get updates during the process.
I’d like to see Walder relax their application guidelines and be more transparent about their process.
Be prepared for a long application process. I was told that rescheduling of board meetings was the cause of delays. However, Walder doesn’t have a board. Asks questions at the start about timing and what the real budgets are. I was given a range to apply for, but then given a much lesser amount because the “funding budget was limited.”
