Grant Applicant - applied in 2016

Fairly hands off funder, but very cumbersome and repetitive reporting process.

Grant Applicant - applied in 2015

Cultivating a relationship with the President or senior-level staff is essential to receiving an invitation to apply for funding from JPB. The process is long and the application is complex, making this foundation relatively inaccessible for less sophisticated/under-resourced organizations, despite the fact that the foundation claims to focus on social equity. There is a multi-step process here involving submitting a relatively short concept paper, then an extraordinarily complex full proposal that includes detailed financial and evaluation plans. Funding levels are high - six figures plus. There is a lot of back-and-forth with program staff to ensure proposals will be attractive to the president and board. The Foundation is not particularly sensitive to the time and resources of their nonprofit grantees, frequently cancelling meetings at the last minute (even in person meetings in NYC that require travel on the part of grantees) and not showing up themselves when arrangements have been made to host them.
