Reviewer UK679 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

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

Gives more than money, Risk taker, Insightful
