We review grant proposals and other fundraising materials that are submitted to us through this website. We have two review periods a year and announce a list of the most important proposals at the conclusion of each round. Each submitted proposal is read internally and assigned to a cohort of reviewers best suited to provide candid and helpful feedback to that proposal. Each round several hundred expert reviewers participate and the process is coordinated by our founder and a small team of consultants.

Our work would not be possible without the dedicated support of our expert evaluation committee. There is no substitute for expert feedback and with such a vast and diverse group of experts the proposals submitted to us all end up in very good hands.
