The Hershey Foundation has one of the most accessible applications. They are also so open to discussing and talking with nonprofits requesting funding and understand how to truly help organizations. The application is straightforward and is not complex. They encourage you to copy and paste from other grant applications and don't have any crazy hurdles to jump through to be funded. Overall, this Foundation is an incredible partner to nonprofits and truly "gets it". They are really making a difference in the work that they do.
