Advice from a Friend

John & Denise Graves Foundation

Dec 31, 2019

Reviewer 5889 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

The John & Denise Graves Foundation is very conscientious about their role as a funder. While they have a specific point of view about improving education systems, when it comes to geographic based funding they have sought to truly follow the direction of the community rather than impose a point of view. They avoid asking grantees to do unnecessary paperwork. They have convened other funders to encourage matching investment as well.
