Advice from a Friend

Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

What is innovative about your program design? “Our program is entirely innovative. The design is unproven; the approach is untested; the outcomes are unknown. We also have a tried-and-true service delivery model with outstanding results and a solid evidence base to support it. But you funded that last year and your priority is to fund innovative projects. So we made this one up. Please send money.”

Very interested in "innovative work" that is vetted each year through a Hunger Games-like competition between local nonprofits. Multiple rounds for the application process, aka lots of dog and pig shows to PROVE how innovate the work is. SUCH A MAJOR TIME DRAIN, it was ridiculous.

It is best to meet with them and/or attend any pre-grant information sessions. Have a list of questions with you.
