GrantAdvisor — an online form that collects, shares, and quantifies anonymous feedback from grantees — published a list of the top 10 GreatFoundations in Minnesota that includes Mary Pence. The top 10 funders were identified for their great work on a statewide level.
“The goal of GreatFoundations is to celebrate the amazing vibrancy of our sector and the foundations who are going above and beyond to ensure grantseekers and grantmakers have strong, productive relationships. We hope the GreatFoundations list will not only highlight best practices, but also identify areas that need improvement to advance equity and accessibility in the grants world.”
Mary’s Pence currently has a 100% rating from past and current grantees on GrantsAdvisor. One recent reviewer wrote: “Mary’s Pence is the most woman-focused funder we have encountered. They address social justice issues with none of the rigidity of other funders in that arena. Their approach is simple, logical and well-organized. They are incredibly accessible and supportive in their interactions with applicants but also in their funding processes. They listen carefully and they are responsive. We are a very small, fiscally-sponsored agency and we have received about 6 foundation grants per year over the past decade. Our experience with Mary’s Pence is the best we have had with any funder.”
