Atkinson Foundation is managed by Pacific Foundation Services. I reached out via email to the person managing Atkinson and got a prompt reply! She's been great giving realistic guidelines and very accessible. It was extra bonus to get a phone call from her telling me we were approved for the grant!

Appreciated the quick response to an email inquiry regarding eligibility. Having the grant application questions -- that are thoughtful and helped think through our program being requested for for funding -- in an easy downloadable PDF format to work off of made the time spent on the grant pleasurable.

Check their due dates and award decision dates before applying, so that you plan to have it submitted before the dates that matter if you need the funds for a project. I think there are 3 due dates a year with their Board meeting several months later.

There are four meetings (and thus four deadlines) each year.

Call/email before applying to make sure you are a good fit for the Foundation. They are great about pre-vetting organizations to make sure they are respectful of everyone's time. Cost per participant is very important to them and they want to make sure they reach the most amount of potential client.
