Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

The Ohrstrom Foundation only accepts applications from invited organizations, so it's best to contact the grant manager early and try to arrange a meeting with him/her or a board member to discuss your project and whether it's a good fit.

The Ohrstrom Foundation funded our work for two consecutive years (yay!) but reduced the amount the second year and then denied our application the third year. It's been difficult to get feedback on whether the tapering off of support was due to our performance, shift in our proposed work (or lack thereof), or for reasons unrelated to us. That's too bad, as we now don't know whether our latest proposal didn't pass muster or whether TOF just wasn't the best fit.

Ohrstrom isn't nearly as picky about proposal and report formatting as many funders, which we appreciate. Less time writing proposals/reports = more time doing good.
