The foundation may have changed their priorities but it still feels very much like if you are a popular organization (one of the cool kids if you will), then you will be funded. But if you're not, I was appalled that we were told by a program officer that our work wasn't as important as we thought it was.

Further, the amount of hoops you have to jump through to get what turns out to be a very small grant seems unrespectful and as if they don't understand the amount of time and energy it takes to go through the application process.

This is a good foundation but they are very atuned to details and fund very specific activities not general operating

Be ready because they can be challenging to interact with. Sometimes deadlines are unclear, the process can feel bureaucratic. They are traditional and not progressive, and their scope can feel somewhat limited. Staff is also overwhelmingly white and middle or upperclass.

Some program officers are very easy to get in touch with, while others you often feel like you are not part of the popular group because they do not get back to you. It is also not clear how in pre-grant conversations you are told you apply for more and then get funded for 50% or less of what you requested. It is a lot of work for not that much funding.
