Reviewer 2114 - Did not apply

This large foundation is very difficult to work with and difficult to receive funding. There seems to be some "pet" agencies they support. Their staff are very difficult to contact, do not follow up, and rude and condescending. It feels as if nonprofits have to grovel to the staff at KHF, which is very demeaning. Also, the board has no representation from the nonprofit community, even retired CEO's, or consumers of service. This only reinforces the perception that many nonprofits have of KHF and their superiority to those doing the actual hard work.

They will say, "you need better outcomes" every single time they deny you but will never ever tell you how to get there. They barely give any rejection feedback at all. Throwing an app here is like working with a black hole. They clearly just want to play favorites.
