Next month this foundation is going to begin discussing a $7 million Safety Net RFP. I encourage you to check our web site for deadlines and funding guidelines. We fund a lot of existing programs because they work. We are very open to consider funding “breakthrough ideas” that may be a big departure from the status quo. I challenge folks who are going to submit a proposal to us to dream big and don’t be afraid to propose a grant request that could cause a massive system change.
As Mr. K said money does not solve problems – People solve problems –but only if we dare to dream outside our comfort zone and think about how things should be. Good Luck!
