do your volunteer members have hard technical skills, for eg in data, software engineering, etc?
STAFF - Cassie Zawilski
27:59
@Ingrid: Yes, some do, esp if you’re a tech nonprofit applying to the Tech Accelerator.
ingrid Xhafa
30:53
are tech nonprofits eligible for the grant cycle? Or are there separate application for all your programs?
STAFF - Cassie Zawilski
32:29
@Ingrid: Yes, there’s one application; you select whether you’re a tech nonprofit or not in the app, and you’re considered for GC if you’re not quite a fit for the Tech Accelerator
ingrid Xhafa
35:05
if the leadership is based in the Bay Area, but the product serves a larger community (across US), would we still be eligible?

What if you have 1 payroll staff, but many more contractors that function as staff?
Lena Jaffe

Is the final 7 awardees inclusive of both Grant Cycle finalists and Tech Accelerators finalists?
STAFF - Cassie Zawilski
39:06
@David you asked about organization stage: the nonprofit capacity needed for the project that Cassie is talking about right now is why we recommend organizations that have several staffers. We have found historically that nonprofits that have the best outcomes in engaging with FCF volunteers are those that are at the state of having a Theory of Change and several staff
STAFF - Cassie Zawilski
39:47
@Lena: Yes, we select 4 nonprofits for Grant Cycle, and 3 for Tech Accelerator, for 7 total.

❓ Q&A: PLEASE SHARE YOUR QUESTIONS IN THE CHAT. 🤔
Paul Soul Shoppe
48:33
Would online education courses (through learning management system) for K-5 schools be considered Tech Accelerator? Not unique software.
Kama Fletcher
49:10
Is there a more in depth description of FCF’s definition of “Education” and/or “Economic Opportunity”?
ingrid Xhafa
51:08
What’s the ideal size of the organisation you’d like to support? How can we best understand if we are too big for this program?
Kama Fletcher
51:08
If we have more than one project we’re considering, should we submit them all?
Paris
51:52
Paris Badat from Greenbelt Alliance - Would you describe the support from the member consultants as guidance and recommendations on how to execute our project or as extra hands to actually execute the project?
Teresa Barnett
52:21
Do you have a preference for "program delivery" vs "organizational infrastructure/capacity building" in the education area? Is one or the other more likely to be favorably considered?
Stasi MEDA
52:44
We applied last year and were not successful. Would it be possible to meet with program staff to learn why our project wasn’t a good fit and/or what we need refocus on to fit better?
Kayle Barnes
54:46
Would you say that direct service organizations are a better fit than policy or advocacy organizations?
ingrid Xhafa
54:54
Can you please elaborate further on the volunteers skills? We’d like to understand for tech nonprofits, if they have hard technical skills in data engineering and software roles for eg. At least 1-2 of them.
Paul Soul Shoppe
55:42
Have you supported any projects in the past that focus on program sales? I see that in the list, but curious what that would look like.
Charles Lerner
55:48
This might be on your site but how do you define “economic opportunity”. How specific are you thinking (e.g. workforce development)?
Kama Fletcher
56:03
Will the presentation slides be available after this webinar?
Kayle Barnes
58:05
Thanks! That's helpful.
Kama Fletcher
58:50
