Please note that the Unfunded List is not a granting program. We review proposals (or other written materials) and the experts on our evaluation committee give their most helpful and candid feedback. We place the best written and most relevant proposals on the official Unfunded list but everyone who submits receives a report that includes feedback from multiple experts on our committee. At our discretion, certain programs may be shared with trusted partners for additional review and opportunities.

To ensure that feedback is read and taken seriously and to help defray costs of our program we charge a $100 application fee per proposal. Please have your payment method ready when submitting.

Thank you in advance for your submission. We look forward to reviewing your work! If you have any questions or any issues uploading please contact

“Thanks so much to the Unfunded List the incredible feedback report, and for funneling the WeWork Creator Awards opportunity to us – it’s amazing how fast things have happened from it, and now we’ve got $360,000 to scale up and develop another fingerprint scanner (for babies!)”

~Christine Kim, Simprints

“While we had already passed the first stage of applying for a first time grant from the NY Women’s Foundation by the time you gave us feedback, the comments from your reviewers DID impact and improve our final application. We just got 60K in new funding!!! YAY!!!

This foundation had not really done any funding in the disability space before.

You helped us break a glass ceiling.

Thanks for all you do! Please thank all the people who reviewed our application for us. #Grateful.”

~Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, RespectAbility

“Thank you again for the time you gave us last week as we think through fundraising for the expansion of the girls program to Niger. I’ve written dozens of proposals over the last decade and have never received feedback from a donor as in-depth and helpful as that provided by you and the reviewers.”

~ Daniel Perlman, UC Berkley (OASIS Project)

“A quick follow-up to thank you so very very much for all your support of our growth as an organization. Your feedback and that of our grant reviewers is so incredibly helpful. Thank you for starting this great organization and for helping so many of us with great advice.

We do appreciate you and your time, and we look forward to being in touch again soon.
We will take our feedback into consideration and will for sure apply to the next round, and hope we are improving!!

Our warmest wishes, and deep gratitude,”

~ Jane, Nan, and Wynona, The Coaching Fellowship

“The Unfunded List provided me with a breadth of feedback that gave me all I need to to know about how to move forward to seek funding. Even the feedback that didn’t agree with on my project was useful. I plan on submitting every time I have something to fund and had I known about the Unfunded List when I was a nonprofit executive director, I would have submitted something every round.”
