Rachel Cohen Gerrol has the longest bio Dave has ever read aloud on Wine Grants. She has served in numerous volunteer capacities and is the founder (or co-founder) of more things than we had time to cover. In 2011, she was the Jewish Girl of The Year. She spent some time as our host’s boss at the PVBLIC Foundation where they worked together to develop the “It’s On Us” campaign in partnership with the White House. For a short time, Dave lived on Rachel’s couch. Rachel is co-founder (along w/ Daniel Karpantschof, an Unfunded List evaluation committee member) of the Nexus Global Youth Summit – an innovative gathering of young philanthropists. Today – she spent some time in a booth with Dave Moss and they talked about how to force innovation into a sector that does not naturally innovate, how to be respectful of the asker’s time and the importance of being on a list.
Unfunded List’s Wine Grants Podcast gathers philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and changemakers of all stripes. Hosted by Dave Moss, who started Unfunded List in 2015 to help make sure that the next generation of changemakers get the feedback and recognition they need to be successful. Our mission is to demystify and open the door to private philanthropy for the general public while providing a platform for our guests to discuss their life’s work.
Unfunded List reviews funding proposals twice annually from small and mid-size nonprofits and social impact startups. The 200+ philanthropy experts on our evaluation committee give helpful and candid feedback about each grant proposal’s weaknesses & strengths. Then we publish the best proposals to our list that we circulate to a rolodex of foundations and philanthropists in the hopes that we can find some funding and partnerships for these amazing unfunded proposals. Unfunded List is currently accepting proposals for our Spring 2019 evaluation round until March 15, 2019. We invite your org to join the Unfunded List awardees and 100+ other projects that our funding evaluators have given feedback to since 2015. Find out more and submit at www.unfundedlist.com.
