trying to plan for and think about the challenges they may encounter and is interested to learn more about how your organization tackled them (where applicable); other best practices, general advice, and lessons learned would also be extremely helpful.

To the best of your knowledge there is no resource currently available that provides advice or “best practices,” so it is important that you convey the most critical information that can assist the foundation with its series of decision matrices. The following questions help frame the context:

  1. What advice would you want to provide to this individual and his or her organization?

  2. What do you wish you had known then that you know now?

  3. If I had only known X, I could have avoided Y.
