Avoid asking them for money. It isn't worth it.

They'll make you think you're on top of the world when they see you at conferences, and then they'll ghost on you. They're flaky and scattered.

All funding opportunities seem to be limited to the Knight Arts Challenge. So whereas the program staff will be encouraging, the final review is done by community panel with varying qualifications.

It feels like they prefer projects that are "out there" - they seem more partial to slightly crazy proposals by small groups of individuals, rather than more traditional proposals and organizations.
