Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

If you are a small nonprofit that has less than $800k in assets/revenue, then I would advise not spending any time applying for the Halo Award grant. After twice being passed over, we reviewed two years worth of cohorts (2016/2017) and found that each one they chose were almost $1mm in funding/assets, and more were over than just under.

However, what made this even more frustrating was that the foundation sent out a demographic list of all those who applied, and found that the majority were under $1mm.

None of the 12% which had operating budgets of lower than $150k were awarded anything for 2017. This is clearly an indication that those who have money -> will get more money. Those who struggle...well, it continues. They sent on their demographic list $150k and under, $150-1mm, and 1mm and over. I wonder how many of the 42% between $150k-1mm were under $500k?

Save your time if you have less, they won't award you anyway.
