The process is very straightforward and the trust is very easy to engage with. The questions are open enough to be able to answers as you wold like but the application form is short enough that you don't spend hours and hours trying to mould you project into complicated formats.

Great that there was a two stage process with an initial e mail, then a phone call and finally the application process. also very positive that the trust is willing to consider core funding for small NGOs, to help them become more sustainable and strategic, as that is exactly what we need ..
Inevitably then disappointing to be turned down, particularly as I thought we had addressed this point in the application, though I'm heartened that there is an opportunity to get more detailed feedback on this.

Pros

The Joffe approach was very interactive, personal and light in terms of time and resources required.

Joffe staff are friendly, engaged and seem truly focused on ensuring a productive partnership. This was evident by their efforts to ensure that the grant application process was simple.

Joffe seems genuinely committed to providing timely and targeted support to smaller organisations.

Using the, helpful, website, research the Trust's mission, aims and who has received grants in the past. Ensure that there is a good fit between the grantee and the Trust and articulate this in the application process. The Director, throughout, and the trustees at the interview meeting were engaging and fostered a relationship based on openness and transparency.
