Hi, I work for a Community Foundation in Vero Beach, Florida and we have a quarterly grant cycle process. Throughout our county we have about six other funders (our local United Way and several philanthropic neighborhoods) who have annual grant cycle processes.

Do you have a similar network of local funders? Do you typically ask if your applicants are receiving funds or are currently applying for funding from other sources? Does this impact your grantmaking decisions?

  • In our application we ask if they are receiving funds elsewhere. We do have a similar network of local funders. I have found that the board or committee is still likely to support the organization but might match what the United Fund gave the organization. I hope this helps.
