Some of the reasons grant applications are rejected include:
No, we cannot provide specific feedback to any applicant. The reason for this is that the committee members that review your grant will change each year. If we were to provide feedback from this year’s site visit team, next year’s site visit team might have a totally different perspective. If you were to make changes based on the opinions of these ladies alone, it might have no relevance whatsoever to a different group of ladies reading and evaluating your grant next year.
No, each non-profit organization may submit only one grant application each year.
No, Each non-profit organization will select the Initiative Focus Area for “First Choice” that best matches the proposed initiative. Select subsequent focus areas in decreasing order of match so that the Focus Area chosen for the “Fifth Choice” least matches the initiative.
You may apply again the following year.
Individual organizations that receive the $100,000 Impact100 SRQ grant cannot apply for the following 2 years. Organizations that apply but are not selected as finalists, or are finalists who do not receive the Impact100 SRQ grant, may reapply the following year.
No. These items are not taken into account in the initial review of the grant application. However, we will be interested in obtaining this type of information during our site visits.
Impact100 SRQ disburses the grant money as a one-time payment or as an installment payment, depending on what they deem to be the most fiscally responsible. A grant applicant may request either type of payment in the application.
