CFF generally prefers to support active programs with some established history of operation and outcomes. Particularly with organizations we know from prior grants, we are willing to learn with our partners, and will be happy to accept applications for more experimental approaches.
CFF often considers general support requests from organizations we’ve partnered with before.
At CFF we are engaged in several collaborations among foundations ourselves, and we generally embrace a collaborative approach to solving difficult problems. We are therefore very open to receiving applications that are collaborative in nature, and will sometimes issue a request for proposals specifically for a collaborative effort.
