If you're like me, the lack of a firm deadline is a blessing and a curse. I recommend setting an internal deadline and really sticking to it—maybe others are more disciplined than I am and this is a non-issue, but we ended up submitting WAY later than originally expected because it's easy to talk yourself into delaying!

They fund broadly across many areas. Having a trustee engaged in your work is helpful but not necessarily essential if you can demonstrate strong community impact. We have never had a proposal funded at the requested level, so factor that into your decision-making when you set your ask amount (or into your expectations and fundraising plan as you await a response).

They like to fund projects and specifically, not the majority of the project cost. Really open to calls and conversations to clarify the ask. Supportive of helping to hone the idea. Pretty simple application process--as complicated as you want to make it. Emailed application with page limits but no painful word or character counts! :)
