Grant Considerations

We take many different aspects of applications into account when making grant issuing decisions, however these are some of the high-level questions we ask ourselves during the process:

  • How does the organization serve their key audience goals?
  • Is the organization fiscally responsible?
  • Will a grant have a tangible, meaningful impact?
  • Will we see direct results from this grant?
  • Does the organization have other financial contributors?
