Reviewer 370 - Grant Applicant - applied before 2014
We received a one-time only grant, despite three additional attempts. We were never told why we were denied. I'm not sure why.
Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Difficult to work with, Culturally incompetent, Bureaucratic
Current or former grantee
Funded for lesser amount
They want to address disadvantaged and underrepresented in STEM, however, that has not been my experience, due to the three denials. I simply stopped applying.
If you want to work with organizations serving underrepresented populations in STEM, put more effort into working with nonprofits and not simply denying and not saying why.
I cannot think of anything.

Reviewer 301 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019
Reached out to the foundation 3 times to open the conversation to pitch the project we had in mind. Auto email said we'd hear back in 10 business days. No word after a month. Moved forward with app because close alignment with their priorities. Received a generic declination in under 2 weeks.
Difficult to work with
Applied and not funded
We lacked an existing relationship, and for that reason had no luck getting in touch. We were declined in under 10 business days, so I can't say how seriously it was considered
