So many grants are written and so many are often left unfunded, even the good ones, simply because there is not enough money to be distributed to every good grant.
More and more today, we are also told by philanthropic bodies that they cannot provide feedback due to the sheer volume of proposals they review. So how do you know if what you’re writing fits into the ‘good’ category or if there are substantial improvements to be made. This proves very challenging.
But now, a relatively new organisation called Unfunded List is supporting organisations working for social outcomes by providing ‘thoughtful and candid feedback’ about unfunded proposals.
If your proposal is selected, it is reviewed (for a minimal fee of $100) by an expert in the field and your proposal and associated feedback is added to the Unfunded List website.
