I’ve learned that we can FOIA gov’t successful grant applications:
Well, now we can hack the fuck out of it. I know someone who knows a lot about filing FOIA reqs.
- find a bunch of good grants to target
- FOAI them
- do other things while we wait
- Analyze the applications in ways that only a group of system builders and system thrashers can
We can almost certainly find very efficient way to apply to many grants. Maybe even automate a lot of it.
If I can get 3-4 people not currently on the fundraising committee to commit to 1 or 2 or both, I’ll speak with my friend about streamlining filling out FOIA reqs. I do not want to waste their time, they are busy holding the gov’t accountable.
This is a really positive way someone can help fundraising without too much effort. If you commit and can’t do later, just say so, doesn’t really matter! Expressing interest in helping is a morale booster!
